Don't make the same mistake that I did!
My name is Peg and I LOVE flowers! My husband, Frank, laughs when I say this. For years I told him NOT to get me flowers for our anniversary or Valentine's Day or my birthday.
I was sooooooo wrong!
When I started growing flowers I realized so many benefits to having flowers in the house:
I couldn't do this without Frank. He helps me when I need some muscle (see how that compassion thing works) and is the infrastructure genius on the farm. He also knows how to deliver (retired UPS driver)!
Frank & I purchased an old farmstead and built a house that we love!
We did a lot of cleanup on the property and there ended up an area that we weren’t sure what to do with. It was too small to do “traditional” Iowa farming so we had to think on it for a while.
We landed on vegetables. It was practical, I mean everyone needs to eat, and I love growing them.
One season the manager at our local farmers market mentioned many, many times (like maybe once a week) that our market needed fresh flowers. My first thought was that flowers aren’t practical and anybody can go to a flower shop or Walmart and get flowers.
But I did some research; and the research showed me that the flowers I might grow will not be anything like those in the grocery store. So…after much research and studying, I decided to try growing flowers.
They grew and bloomed!
Then, much to my surprise, my creative side was awakened and I started to design arrangements and bouquets.
So now I am obsessed with flowers. And why not? Flowers are beautiful! They smell wonderful! They bring back beautiful memories and create new ones. And when they are farm fresh, they last and last.
