The lisianthus in my low tunnels have been thriving! They’ve been hit with some pretty hard frosts and are still growing so well! I’m excited that I’ll be planting a lot more next year so I can hopefully offer flowers throughout October!

So excited to have the wonderful Lindsay Oosterhof Photography use our truck for her Christmas photo setup this year! So gorgeous!

Those of you with minis tomorrow, keep an eye on your inboxes. There’s a bit of instructions on the location to make it a wee bit less confusing.

Also, just dropped off the truck and I am just so so excited to show you this perfect scene! Can’t wait!

It’s that time of year again!! I know it’s not even November yet but I’ve been getting a lot of orders coming in for Whoville trees so I figured I’d open up ordering. These trees are made with fresh greens and therefore require to be watered like a real Christmas tree - they therefore also smell wonderful! If watered regularly this tree will last you months and months - I finally took mine down in April! Given their long shelf life, I will be offering pickup as of the first week in November so you can start enjoying these right away. Message me to get on my list! I have a select number that I’ll be making this year, the second photo with the white pot is what I’ll be working with. If you have a color preference please let me know upon ordering and I’ll do my best to accommodate.

Woke up this morning still so thankful for yesterday! Fall for Merrickville is definitely one of the best markets of the year and I sure hope I’m lucky enough to be included for years to come. This setup which included gorgeous dried bunches was so dreamy! We also had so much fresh eucalyptus as well, which everyone really enjoyed! Now on to prepping my field for next year and getting all my seeding schedules ready!

Here’s a look at the first couple of pumpkin vases I’ve made for Fall for Merrickville! I’m so excited about these as the pumpkins are ceramic and can be used so many different ways once your blooms are done! Repurpose as a candy dish or a treat bowl! Can’t wait to see you all on Saturday, 10-4!

Already missing making bouquets and meeting so many lovely people for pickups. Tomorrow I’ll be working on pumpkin centerpieces that will be available at Fall for Merrickville. My centerpieces are ceramic pumpkins so you can reuse them year after year and repurpose them when the florals are done!

UPDATE on my attendance to Fall for Merrickville: I will be there with my flower truck! After taking stock of what I have been able to salvage after 2 nights of kill frost, and reaching out to some local farmers (who happen to be the loveliest friends) I will have enough blooms to make some glorious centerpieces. More exciting than that is that Amy from will be joining me with her gorgeous dried florals so that together we will have an abundance of thanksgiving offerings on my flower truck! So thankful for this flower community and an extra big shoutout to Erin from who is the most awesome businesswoman and took a few minutes out of her day to chat with me! I hope to see you all on Saturday from 10-4!

That frost last night was killer, literally! We lost pretty much everything in the field even though we covered with frost cloth, tarps and thick plastic. My dahlias somehow survived as did a couple other varieties that are growing closer to the river where it is a microclimate and differs greatly from the field. Given this circumstance, I will no longer be attending Fall For Merrickville as a vendor this Saturday. I will not have nearly enough flowers to fill my truck. I will have a limited amount of thanksgiving centerpieces available for pickup on Friday and will post shortly for preorder. Thank you all for the support during the best first year of farming!

Oh how I’m going to miss fresh blooms in the kitchen after this week! Doing my absolute best to keep my blooms covered and thriving until I can do a final harvest on Wednesday before Fall For Merrickville. Stay tuned for updates on if I’ll have any blooms to make it! 🌻

Fully embraced the fall colors with this one!! Unfortunately I am closing for orders until after Fall For Merrickville which is taking place October 8th at Heritage Stables from 10-4. It has been a tremendous season, so much support and better than I could have ever imagined! I can’t thank you all enough for your support, kindness, and constant encouragement! I’ve met new friends and the most wonderful people and I cannot wait to see what the next year brings! Stay tuned, I have lots planned for the holidays over the winter!

Sometimes when life gets busy we have to remember to stop and smell the flowers. I feel so lucky that I was able to stop by Riverfront Florals pop up shop today. I had a lovely visit with the owner & her flowers brightened and refreshed my day! If you haven't heard of them head on over to their Facebook or Instagram page and give them a follow where you can see their beautiful flowers and find out where their new pop up shop will be. They also offer local delivery if you message to see what they have available for the coming week.
I just mentioned your amazing business on boom 99.7! :)
