We are set up and ready to go! Fresh cut flowers, plants, radishes, salad mix, rhubarb, and more! Come on out to the east side of the daycare and see us! Farmer Clint and his mom, Phyllis, are manning the stand from 8-12. Stop in on your way by to pick up some goodies!
The supervisor says it's too windy out to farm.
Farmer Clint made his tomatoes a trellis last night. Because they are indeterminate, they will grow more as a vine than in a typical bushy plant. Yay on rain and nice weather to help everything grow!
Happy Mother's Day to the two moms who made this dream of ours a reality. They show up every weekend, ready to help out with whatever needs done. You guys are awesome! For those of you who aren't familiar with our families, can you guess who is Farmer Clint's mom and who is my mom?
First Winterset Farmer's Market of the season! Annd we're conveniently located next to @pammelparkcoffee . Buy a bouquet or another gift for that special person in your life, then grab a cup of delicious coffee.
First market of 2018 to first market of 2019. Holy smokes! We have tablecloths... and a banner! Want to see these changes, plus get some local, home grown, homemade goodies? You're in luck. Tomorrow from 8-12 is the first annual Winterset Farmer's Market. Farmer Clint will be there to see everyone. I, alas, will be on day 2 after chemo so the couch and I will be best friends most of the day.
February 2017- about 3 months after we moved in, then flash forward to today. There are more plants, an extra flower bed or two, and a whole lotta love for our little place. If you look hard, you can see a line of rose bushes and a line of peonies. We're so thankful we were able to move here and grow (pun intended).
Farmer Clint found a pet for Seeley. Its name is Larry the grub. It's busy over at Cedar Shake. We still have about a zillion (not quite) plants to go in beds. But it'll be worth it when everything looks all gorgeous.
These past couple weeks have been ridiculously productive. Plants and seeds and tubers are going in the ground almost daily. I'm so excited for this growing season to see what all happens. I'm a sucker for a garden in full production mode.
Its been a long weekend of planting veggies, flowers, pulling & bouquet’ing up tulips and our first Farmer’s market where we sold spinach, bunching onions, pea shoots and radishes; all the while knowing Monday it’s back to the normal grind of the day job and Kelli has her 3rd round of chemo. Definitely busy around here and can’t seem to find enough time in the day to plant everything. Next year we’re basically going to need to till up the entire yard even more so than we have already. #cedarshakefarm #plants #seed #chemo #hodgkinslymphoma #iowa #thisisiowa #iowacsa #cedarshakefarmhouse #sunset #spring #tulips #growfloret #farm #iowaoutdoors #captureiowa #dsmsociety #winterset @bakercreekseeds @johnnys_seeds
Stop by the farm today from 11-5pm for our Cinco de Mayo sale. Tulips, spinach, microgreens, veggie plants, and more!
CINCO DE MAYO SALE tomorrow 11-5pm. Seeley would like to see y'all tomorrow at the farm and so would we. We have tulip bouquets, veggie and perennial plants, microgreens, and spinach available. There's a good variety of everything, and we'll even give you a short and sweet tour of our little spot. Our address is on our website (linked in profile). Take a Sunday drive and c'mon over.
We are all set up at the Ted Lare farmer's market, so come on out and see us! It's a perfect day to walk through the garden center too! We have lots of goodies for everyone. Mason jar and hand bouquets, microgreens, spinach, onions, plants, rugs, and wreaths. Grab some tulips and have a chat with Farmer Clint.
It's market day, it's market day!! Over at the farm, we're packaging up fresh pea shoots, and other yummy things. I also thought you might enjoy seeing the variety of rugs available in all their glory (cue swipe left to video). On a side note, we will have TULIP BOUQUETS & veggie plants available too! Hope to see you awesome people at the Ted Lare #farmersmarket this afternoon in Cumming. #iowa #iowacsa #tedlare #spinach #radish #bunchingonions #peashoots #microgreens #plants @tedsgardens
Today seemed like a good day to do a salute to tulips. It's crazy that our tulips are already almost done blooming. I can't wait until next year's tulip season!
A few Charming Beauty tulips lost their heads in the storm the other night. Now they'll brighten up the kitchen. The daffs are on their last legs as well, until next year, so they get the 'didn't make the cut' spot next to the sink. Man, I love flowers! Happy May Day!
New rugs, new rugs! I've been busting my booty to get a few more rugs done for the @tedsgardens farmer's market this Saturday and the Winterset Farmer's Market next Saturday. I'm loving all the color combos happening at the farm right now! (And the tulips!!)
Some very happy Cedar Shake Farm tulips have found a new home (at least until you take them with you) at the Winterset Fareway. Stop in and pick up a gorgeous, locally- grown bouquet to brighten your day!
We are all set up and ready to go! Come out to Living History Farms and see us from 11-5pm!
