Hey all! Excited to finally get a flower farm on the podcast this week (we are looking into adding some flowers to the operation so I also somewhat selfishly needed to get a flower grower on). Are you all doing flowers? Anything helpful that you picked up from this one? I knew nothing about flowers really so it was all helpful to me. The wholesale flower business sounds interesting... thoughts!?

Great episode, those guys are awesome! We experimented with flowers this year. My wife is currently giving me grief since I was so hesitant to add a couple of rows of them at the beginning of the season, and now I want to devote a field block to them next year. Zinnias were super durable in the field for us. We foraged most of our greenery and fillers from pasture around our farm, or from the roadside.

Haha, we’re in the same boat. We used to do more cut flower than we do now and we always loved to forage stuff, especially in the all with all the grass seed hands in the pasture and goldenrod. Awesome to hear you liked this one!
