Spring 2012 has proved to be a season of all seasons..a combination of 70 degree days and 30 degree nights.. Trees, shrubs and bulbs are confused about what to expect in the coming weeks, and frankly so are we. It should be interesting to see what damage has been done due to huge range in temperatures. Even though we have had this rollercoaster of a season so far this Cape Codder is confident that all will even itself out.
Here at the Farm it’s business as usual. Thousands and thousands of Perennials grown here, needed to be planted in just a few short weeks. Sean, Emily, Terence and I (the fearsome foursome ) have enjoyed some laughs along the plantings path. We have also had the help from Deacon and Tyler the brothers “Crocker” and are so thankful for their dedication to the family. This year is especially exciting with the introduction of many new additions; it feels like a new rainbow of colors will cover our fields. Echinacea’s from Terra Nova nursery, a proven grower with expertise in growing and propagating has supplied us with the best in new varieties.
As usual my brother other true love, the Heuchera’s are going to make a spectacular show for themselves. So many new additions, please take a peek at our current list!
We are so excited for yet another season here on amazing Cape Cod. We are so fortunate, good health, a short commute, and the unity of family..what else could you ask for???(well maybe last night’s Mega Millions…but whatever..)
