The farm has been buzzing with activity over the past two weeks. Last Thursday we finished planting close to 5,000 dahlias, dug a 100 ft trench for a new waterline, plus cleaned and organized our tractor shed and propagation house. We have been implementing a number of ideas we learned from reading The Lean Farm and are doing our best to purge the clutter and really hone in on what we do best. The busy season is bearing down on us fast and furious and we’re rushing to get as much done as we possibly can. Our field and hoophouses are already brimming with color and we’ve harvested buckets of pretty parrot tulips, ranunculus, narcissus, anemones and giant Iceland poppies in luscious sherbet shades (check out my Instagram feed for a few fun shots).
Gardeners and farmers across the country are busy prepping fields, starting seeds and even harvesting early blooms. Here are just a few images tagged with #floretseeds or #growfloret that caught my eye.

I love the community of fellow farmer-florists and gardeners that are actively sharing what they are planting, growing, harvesting & designing on social media.
Throughout the growing season, please continue to share photos of your Floret seed packets, seed starts, baby plants and your flowers in bloom on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter or Pinterest, tagging it with #FloretSeeds or #GrowFloret. I’ll periodically feature a few of my favorites here on the blog. If your photo is features, I’ll send you a little Floret Seeds goody bag.
Thanks for playing along!
