Our gardens are completely powered by Bunny Poop for fertilizer (the best best best!) and are also watered by the SUN! We have an artesian well that is pumped every day when the sun is shining, into a farm well.....by our solar panels! From the farm well, we can send water to both gardens through the drip tape lines via an electric pump. Sometimes, we send the water from the artesian well, via solar power, up the line to the holding tank at the top of our hill. On cloudy days, we can then open the tank and the water comes down the hill in the main line and into the drip tape system via gravity feed! Dan has created an intricate and perfect watering system for the gardens. We are thrilled with our rabbit manure fertilizer! So yes, our gardens are watered by the sun and our flowers are powered by bunnies!!!
Not open until July 1st...but here's an update: The first flowers of the summer. Not many, but pretty in pockets. Yes, we have some flowers but not many. Just here and there in little pockets of color. Just a little hint of things to come. Expect a great showing of blooms in mid to late July. They will then keep the color going straight to October!

Yard by Yard, Life is Hard, Inch by Inch, It's a Cinch...Row by Row by Row by Row.....We are almost halfway finished planting the annuals. This year, we've decided that whatever the two of us can accomplish re planting our garden(s), that's what will be. Tonight, after a long day of planting, we got giddy and brought the 'Song' into The Song Garden, singing old radio hits at the top of our lungs while we finished our last rows for the day. Tomorrow, it's back to it for a marathon. We love this work. We had visitors from Maine today hoping for tea and spring flowers. We were sorry to have to tell them that our operation doesn't open until July 1st. We toured the mint and lemon verbena patch and had a lot of fun with aroma therapy. Dan and I are working hard making sure that The Song Garden of 2015 will be spectacular for our July 1st opening.
