Harvesting Blooms in the Flower Patch

April 11th, 2024

Some of the flowers in our flower patch are just beginning to bloom! In years past, the goal of the flower patch was to provide bouquets for our Mother’s Day Market. This year, we’re hoping to keep the patch growing from now through the fall with different flower varieties. You’ll be able to see these blooms any time you visit the farm. If you prefer to bring that beauty home with you, we have a limited amount of bouquets at the Farm Stand every weekend! We’re currently harvesting small amounts of zinnias, cosmos, and sunflowers. You can expect to see plenty of other varieties later in the season like bachelor’s buttons, gomphrena, and poppies.

We’ve arrived at the point in the spring when cool season crops are being phased out each week in order to make way for spring ones. Most of our lettuces, kohlrabi, and broccoli are out of season with kale and collard greens following suit in the next few weeks. The good news is that new spring crops will take their place! Cucumbers and summer squashes are already in season with tomatoes, peppers, and eggplants (below) arriving over the next month. We just spotted the first signs of blush on our cherry tomatoes so you can expect to see them at the Farm Stand in the next couple of weeks!

Don’t forget to come celebrate Earth Day with us during our annual Earth Day Market on Saturday, April 20th from 9am-1pm! One of the hallmarks of Earth Day is to be a good steward of the Earth which is why we love to incorporate a creek cleanup. Oyster Creek runs along the eastern side of the farm and is a large ecological habitat for wildlife and native plants. It’s also a buffer for filtering water before it makes its way to the Gulf. If you’d like to help us clean up Oyster Creek, make sure to arrive by 10am during the Earth Day Market! We’ll be providing gloves and trash bags.
