Planting Days

The author of ”The Flower Farmer” writes that anyone who hopes to be successful in this biz should learn to love planting, because it needs to happen almost every week of the growing season to keep a good succession of things blooming.

On this day, we put tons of starts in the ground, including lots of foliage like eucalyptus.

We also put another few trays of lisianthus in the ground. I guess last year was a bad year for lisi’s on the farm, so this year Clara really doubled down (tripled? quadrupled?) on these roselike blooms. If all goes well, we’ll be swimming in ‘em soon enough.
