Wedding flowers and garden tours

This September and October we are redesigned our gardens to be more efficient by installing permanent garden beds eliminating the need to disk, plow and cultivate large areas. Permanent beds are more efficient requiring less fertilizer, water, and labor. We installed underground drip irrigation for each bed, eliminating the labor of moving garden hoses across acres of ground.  Now we are concentrating on soil quality within each bed by doing soil tests and adding organic fertilizers, tilling the soil several times and removing all the stones, and planting in cover crops that will be tilled into the beds later for increased fertility. We are working on adding a flower garden for wedding guests to enjoy and pick for table centerpieces. We also are working on ideas for regular garden tours, and possibly offering garden shares for this coming summer. Come out anytime for a visit!
