Container Report

Hi everybody!  How are your containers doing??  With all the rain we've had this spring and early summer, the watering chores have been a lot lighter.
We love the purple alyssum.  It might rest a bit during the very hottest of the summer, but it really shines bright early and late season.  It's especially looks good with orange--here with a zinnia and in later with the pumpkins.
Hens and chicks. . . always happy pretty much everywhere they are planted. 
The tipsy topiary got a new home out by the chickens this year.
Do concrete blocks count as containers?  We'll just call this a hybrid between edging & container :)
Hope your containers are happy and healthy.  
Leave us a picture in the comment section-we'd love to see!

Summer Farm Mail

Dear Friends ~

It is with a happy heart that I am able to finally send you an email with our new 'helper', Mail Chimp! Some of you are loooong overdue for a note from me (and maybe you thought I fell off the Earth!).  But here we are, things are great at the shop, the gardens are amazing, and we are already harvesting a wonderful crop of flowers. Hopefully, your garden is happy with the rain and heat too.

And I hope you are able to come see us during the lazy hazy days of Summer.  The Farm is a perfect place to bring out-of-town friends and family (along with lunch at Morningstar of course!).  Make a day of it - when's the last time you strolled through New Salem?

Ok - where's my clippers?  Ta-ta!  I hope to see you soon!
