Busy planting and getting the place ready. We wll open for flower picking in mid July!

A bit of a late start re: planting.  Planted about half the garden and the other half of the seedlings are thriving in their cell packs and ready to get into the soil, but our garden was too muddy to plant during Memorial Day weekend!  It finally dried out a week later, last weekend, June 4th....so, we've been gettting to work planting...a week late!  High hopes that the garden will start to bloom in mid July, like in previous years.  Why do we open so late???  Because we mostly grow annuals from seed, starting in April, and it takes approximately 3 months till bloom time....thus, mid July!  It's worth the wait!
