LML Flowers at the Good Farm

Little Miss Lovely Flower Farm I'm trying to bring a little sunshine to this grey, rainy, summer day... I was excited to wake up to the sound of raindrops on the roof this morning. This week’s early-summer heat wave made me a little nervous. My early mornings and late afternoons were spend hosing down the potted plants and carrying heavy buckets of water from the rain barrel to the incubator and vegetable gardens.  My flowers are still standing and only a few leaves yellowed from the sun. The nights are getting warmer and my flowers are taking advantage of it. I visited The Good Farm to check on my flowers just a few days ago; they hadn’t bloomed yet. This morning I checked again; dozens of blooms and it’s like my plants have grown 5” overnight! So stately and beautiful!

The Nasturtium have exploded with blossoms of coral, orange, peach, yellow, white, and pink. The Aster and Sweet William are ready to open at any moment. Their buds are towering atop their green stems. My Ranunculus are finished for the season. I’m a little heartbroken. My cold-loving flowers seem to have disappeared and have transformed into tall withering sticks after producing beautiful feathery heads for several weeks. The heat did them under. Thankfully, Dahlias will replace their space in my heart and I will continue on with striking fluffy feathers this season. I’m so happy to have heat, sunshine, new flowers, and to be covered in dirt 24/7 again (alright, maybe not 24 hours a day…).

The Good Farm looks fantastic! It’s a beautiful site, for sure. Christie, Ric and the team of volunteers have been working non-stop! This past Saturday the Good Farm trucks were loaded with fresh spring salad mix, garlic scapes, tender mustard greens, kale, baby radishes, and more. The Good Farm is represented at the Lewes Farmers Market and the Ocean Pines Farmers Markets on Saturdays from 8 am – noon. If you’d like to volunteer at The Good Farm, send an email to TheGoodFarm.David@gmail.com with your availability. Like The Good Farm on Facebook, too! I’ll have more photos of Little Miss Lovely’s flowers at The Good Farm for you next week! Enjoy the rain and a break from the heat! -Ami
