This last weekend I had the pleasure of traveling to Eugene, Or to visit friends (I'm a UofO alum) and attend a workshop on wreath making from flower farmer Bethany Little. I've long admired her work. It was invigorating to learn some new tips, designs, and be inspired by her vast array of floral materials.
For those of you interested in purchasing a wreath, they will be available as both a box item and an add-on item for our 2 remaining deliveries. The pattern with be made of festive red rose hips, spruce, and other fall treasures. 2 sizes available: smalls for $23 on a vine backing and large circular wreaths on a metal backing for $60.
A new trial this fall is Amarylis bulbs. We ordered in the most deluxe bulbs to be found, potted them up in organic potting mix and attractive pots and have them ready for sale. Should be blooming around Christmas time. 3 different varieties with 3 different pots for sale now.
We are also opening up our personal stores of shallots for these boxes and jam will be a regular box option too. The cold spell and 11 degree night we suffered in mid-October has limmited our fresh offerings for you in unexpected ways. We had hoped to be loading these November boxes with cauliflower, broccoli, kale, chard, arugula, and salad greens. Sorry that the weather had other plans... We are dreaming of the endives and chicories we will grow for next fall that will weather these kinds of temperatures. Thanks for your ongoing support of your local farm.
