Ahhh, feel that crisp cool breeze, stock up on that Halloween candy, and take in that stunning view as the leaves begin to turn shades of gold, orange, and red… I don’t know about all of you, but after that ultra-hot Summer, I’m thinking Fall has never looked so good!!!
The inferno-style heat really did a number on our landscaping here at the farm. But with the cooler temps ahead of us, we’re sending those sad old spring flowers packing and bringing in some fresh new faces to liven things back up. And with Halloween less than a week away, it’s high time to transform your yard into a spooky playground for all those trick-or-treaters coming your way. Don’t worry, we’ve got all the Fall Decor you will ever need right here on the farm. Our Retail Girls have been busy lil pumpkins and have created a whole greenhouse full of fanciful characters for your Fall Scene. And our pansies, violas, snapdragons and mums are in full bloom, eagerly awaiting a new garden to call home. We also have wheat straw, corn stalks, gourds and pumpkins to complete your Fall Make-Over!
Don’t forget that Fall is the perfect time to plant new trees. And in honor of the perfect tree-planting season, we’ve slashed our prices on all our fruit trees by 40%!!!
So grab your garden gloves, drag out that spade, and let’s transform our gardens one pansy at a time!!!
Yes, it’s Summer. Yes, it’s HOTTTT. And yes, we are plum crazy to already be planning for the Fall in the middle of a heat wave. But hey, what true gardener isn’t a little crazy? While we relish in the spoils of our current crops, somewhere in those wild brains of ours, we are already deciding which veggies we’re going to plant next.
Fall Tomatoes are just like regular tomatoes, except you harvest them in the Fall clear to the first frost. The plants are slightly smaller than what you’re used to, but fear not, they are hardy little things and will grow up to be just as big as those other tomato plants you know and love. Fall tomatoes need lots of water, especially during the drought-like conditions we’ve been having lately. They also need a little lime in their soil. To prevent Blossom-end Rot, Septoria Leaf Spot and other viruses, you will want to spray your tomatoes with a fungicide beginning the first week you plant them and once every week thereafter. This is the prime-time to plant Fall Tomatoes. We have a few varieties to choose from, but they will go fast. So be sure to come see us soon.
