Where to begin?! Not at the beginning. Ain’t nobody got time for that. If you really want to catch up go to my Instagram account @anne_es_garden_fresh. In the mean time my apology those who have searched here & wondered if I fell off the earth. I did… sort of; didn’t we all in one way or another in 2020. I’d love to hear all about how you have fared in this “year of years”. Tell me all about it, let’s sit outside with an iced tea or a lemonade and be social.
I’ll start here with this week. We have experienced heat + irrigation breakdowns that have led to rapid blooming & desiccation of blooms. That resulted in loads of blooms at the moment but fewer than expected for too close to Mother’s Day.
So please come & get them now while the getting is good!
We’re so excited that we will be able to flower you this week!
Here’s some rose spam plus a peek at the blooms from the pollinator gardens that will be the chorus to the roses. Additionally our friend Emily of @bene_vivendo let us harvest with her yesterday & we hit the jack pot for you. We will have all colors of Bachelor Buttons, think pink, purple, blue, lavender even bi-color. 😃 We also cut sweet smelling Dara, Russian sage, Larkspur, Calendula, and more!
Of course we have plenty of our sweet Lemon verbena, Lemon balm, Lavendula, Anemone, Ranuculus and Snap dragons, Mints (chocolate, peppermint & spearmint, a bit of chocolate flowers, scented geraniums, basils, blue salvia, Jasmine & Honeysuckle. Surely I’ve forgotten something . Just know we have a love.y assortment to create your fragrant desert cottage garden bouquets.
Also being harvested now are our Globe & Italian Artichokes, Garlic chives and Pink Lemons. Hint: both are great for cooking with your Artichokes. We’re excited to about to be harvesting our Cardoons. They are the cousin to the arties. The ribs of their leaves are steamed or sautéed & taste like the heart of an artichokes with less work. The choke does not amount to much of anything to eat but they are lovely. We’ve even used their leaves to wrap our bouquets!
We will be adding more photos here & to our IG account @anne_es_garden_fresh. because who isn’t a visual learner when it comes to flowers.
SO MOTHER’S DAY BRING IT ON WE ARE READY FOR YOU
