weekend garden happenings + a floral workshop!


this weekend was such a good one. i arrived home from a week on the coast of california to bright sunflowers, an abundant garden & a sweet husband. 


on saturday, we spent the morning in the garden. we harvested over 100 bulbs of soft-neck garlic & about 30 bulbs of the hard-neck variety. they're all now hanging in our barn to cure. 



we also dug up potatoes! we were a little late in planting our crop this spring, but they produced quite well! we gifted some to neighbors & will eat or sell the rest. there's nothing quite like a fresh potato! i plan to roast some this evening along with beets & broccoli. 



the flowers in our garden are absolutely stunning this year! this is our second summer to plant sunflowers & zinnias along the dirt road for our sweet neighbors. it's now a tradition! 


also, friends! if you haven't heard the news, we're opening up our sweet & cozy freckled hen farmhouse studio for a floral workshop with stephanie of mosey posies on july 30th! you can register HERE.

stephanie will teach us how to create wildflower crowns & arrange mini bouquets of flowers! we will serve herbal iced teas & shortbread cookies + treat you to a sweet swag bag brimming with lovely goods. it's such a fun & intimate way to learn about flowers from one of our local experts! spots are limited so register soon right here. xo!

I love how vibrant your photos always are! Gorgeous!

We are gardening for the first time this summer, and it's definitely trial and error. Our basil, hot peppers, tomatoes, and Swiss chard are all doing really well. Already started making pesto, and can't wait to make big batches to freeze!

Garlic and potatoes: two crops we still can't figure out! I'm a little envious. :)
