We planted lots of flower plugs in October and direct seeded lots of seeds for spring flowers.  After a brief rest, we will soon start seeding trays for more spring flowers.  Here are a few pictures of some of the young plants that come from direct seeding.






 Some of the young tiny plants are covered with frost cloth to protect against winter weather.

Here we are in August with hot, humid weather, insects having meals off the sunflowers and zinnias and of course the powdery mildew on the zinnias.  But this is what we expect every year at this time. Just some years not as bad as others.  But you keep planting and hoping to have a fall crop of useable blooms.
I'm going to post a few pictures of the bouquets we had available on the wagon from May until today August 8, 2017.


              These bouquets were on Flower Wagon May 27th, 2017






                                   These are from the June 3rd, 2017 cuts.








These are from June 24, 2017





                                          These are from July 9, 2017  

In one bouquet you can see the beautiful Stargazer lily.  The stargazer had just begun to bloom.  In the bouquets below you can also se the limelight millet, tansy, some small pieces of celosia syphlid and hi-z as well a tuberose and of course the zinnias and sunflowers.






                                             These are from July 28, 2017  

Now seeing more spiky celosias, purple gomphrena, purple majesty millet and of course lots of bright colored zinnias and the big red head celosias.






                                            These are from August 5, 2017.   

Seeing more celosias in bouquets, both the spicata varieties and cristata varieties. And in a few there is the sweet little Henry Eilers rudbeckia.




 So this brings up to date through August 2017, showing the basic bouquets we have as the months progress.  I have to say, we have wonderful customers that come and buy from our Flower Wagon when we have bouquets available.  I always enjoy the feedback my customers send my way about our bouquets.

Today was the first day of putting bouquets on the wagon.  We have been running about 3 weeks behind with enough flowers coming off to make nice full bouquets.  This week we have been blessed with nice rains to help the freshly planted flower plugs.  Also checked on the sunflower crop and looks like sunflowers will be blooming in a couple of days.

It has been a challenging Spring for Mickey and me.  There were a lot of medical issues going on last fall which slowed us down and we weren't able to get all the planting done last fall that we normally do.  So comes the Spring and our inventory of flowers is down, but as always, it seems that we have been blessed with enough to give us a good combination for our first bouquets for the wagon this week.  The early Spring plantings are just beginning to show some blooms.  If all goes well, we should have bouquets available most weekends on the wagon.

We have cut lots of lilies this week.  Always a short season for lilies.  They all bloom at one time.
