Spa Time for the Ranunculus

It takes a lot of TLC for these beauties!

The Ranunculus has been soaking all day today while I worked on unpacking and my indoor gardening.    They need to be soaked for 10 hours.  Once the soaking  process has been completed, I will separate,  pot and place  them  1″ deep in soil.  I will  keep them at room temperature for 2-3 weeks and then place them in the high tunnel and watch them grow.  I can’t wait to see how they turn out!

Light Therapy

It was a whopping 30 degrees high today.

I spent some quality time with our plants that the Farmer planted earlier in December.

These girls are… Amazon Neon Purple Dianthus (Sweet William) No.1-5

Chantilly White Snapdragon No. 6-10

Rudbeckia  Indian Summer No. 11-12

Dianthus Marie Chabaud No. 13-16

They were needing a little more room so I put them in pots and gave them some well deserved light therapy. I wonder who will get first dibs on these this spring?

Happy Thanksgiving

From our farm to yours – Happy Thanksgiving.

Life sometimes seems to be a series of challenges. Too often I often focus on the things that didn’t go right – an example is our garden this year. More this year than years in the past, I’ve been thankful for all of the good stuff through the year.

On this special holiday designated for Thanksgiving, I’m thankful for my salvation, for a loving family and for the chance to try each day to improve on the day from before. I’m thankful for the many friends whose smile and friendship make me a better person.

Happy Thanksgiving Friends.
