If you want to know more details about our farm and how I got started on this wild and crazy journey, please check out this article that is the fruit of reconnecting with an old high school friend recently, who has become a fantastic freelance writer.

We had an absolute blast hosting hundreds of folks at the farm this past weekend as part of the Wing Haven Garden Tour. Check out this brief time-lapse video we set up to document a bit of the action!


 

Lilly’s house is finally all dolled up and organized, thanks primarily to MB and to the father-son duo, Aaron and Aaron McPherson, our favorite carpenters who installed shelving units for us to organize our event rental decor, built us a pull-down stairway to the attic, and moved all of the heaviest furniture out of the main room!


 

Sid, David, and I were all smiles at the end of a successful garden tour day as all of our hard work in preparation had come to an end and was paid off by a beautiful weekend!


 

Small-Order Custom Floral Design Available
I created a large pastel centerpiece in a customer’s family vase for a dinner party she hosted last week. If you’re ever in need of a piece of floral decor for a party or gathering, please keep us and our flowers in mind!

It’s almost time for another session of our Family Food Garden Series
Mark your calendars for Tuesday, May 17th at 6:30pm or Wednesday, May 18th at 10am to meet Pressly and Jeff Rieves at Renfrow Hardware before walking up the farm to learn about companion planting! Email me to reserve your spot. Walk-ins welcome. Learn more details here.

Companion Planting is an ancient concept that is new again. We’ll look at ways to get more fresh food from your garden, attract pollinators and beneficial insects, and repel the critters that cause us trouble.

Thanks so much for your faithful support of our little farm,
