Around the farm

Despite a really long winter, I’m amazed every day at the beauty springing forth around me.





These guys were so hot today they were hanging out on the outside of the hive.


And they’re loving the crabapple!





A visit to my mother’s garden.





plant sales at the farm-15% early season discount!

It may feel like winter today but gardening season is just around the corner and we’ve got a greenhouse full of plants that are ready to go.


A wide selection of herbs like this lovely pineapple mint,

IMG_1932-blogrosemary, various thymes, lavenders, chives, oregano, parsley, sage, cilantro, and dill. Several varieties of basil will be ready soon.


Some cool weather edibles like lettuce and kale.


A tempting selection of peppers (hot and sweet), tomatoes (cherry, paste, heirlooms, and hybrids), and strawberries.


We’ll also have some fun and beautiful perennial plants ready to go.




Instead of just having one day of plant sales here at the farm, we’ve decided to have several days with open hours during these next couple weeks before market starts. If you’re out and about and in need of some plants, stop by during the hours listed below. And for taking the time to drive out here, we’ll be offering a 15% discount on all plant sales here at the farm.

Friday, April 19th from 1:00-6:00 pm

Saturday, April 20th from 2:00-6:00 pm

Tuesday, April 23rd from 1:00-6:00 pm

Friday, April 26th from 1:00-6:00 pm

If you can’t make it to the farm you can find us at the following 2 events in April.

Earth Day– Sunday, April 21st from 12-4 pm at Antelope Park

Natures Market-Saturday, April 27th from 10:00 am-3:00 pm at Pioneers Park

After these events we will be at the Haymarket Farmers Market at 7th and P every Saturday morning, 8-noon, starting May 4th and running through the second Saturday in October.

Hope to see you at one of these!



My friend Jennifer told me the other day that she feels wealthy whenever she has a nice supply of honey on hand. I thought it a bit of an odd remark until I started filling honey jugs this week and you know, I think I understand just what she was talking about.

I also felt wealthy as I prepared tomato sauce to go into the freezer in preparation for yummy pizzas and spaghetti this winter.

The counting of my wealth continued as I watched jars of salsa, peaches,


and tomatoes being carried off to their basement storage.

I or my children have never felt true hunger.

Yes, I truly am wealthy and thankful to the One who provides my wealth!

Enjoy your day as you count your riches!

A vintage wedding

From our very first meeting I could tell this beautiful bride had been planning her wedding since the day she was born! There were so many fun details, it was hard to capture all of them in pictures.

The design process begins.

I loved this program!

These bottles were so fun.

Congratulations Anna and Thomas!

Aren’t these doors amazing?! Many of these pieces came from Nostalgia Rentals in Lincoln, NE. If you’re wanting to do a vintage event you should check them out. And as always, the venue, Hillcrest Country Club, was beautiful!


I think putting flowers on cakes is the hardest thing I do…I’m always so tempted to dip my finger in the frosting! Once again, I resisted.

Isn’t this vintage fold out bride adorable? A fun family heirloom.

Thanks guys, it was fun!
