    Flower Farming Options: Piece of Mind

    Flower Farming Options: Piece of Mind

    As I thought about the subject of this podcast, I began to realize that this topic maybe what truly led me to become a successful business owner. I either set myself up to always have options or I actually have just gotten good at seeing them. Not sure which, but I guess it really doesn't matter. 

    Not backing myself into a corner in business, in farming, and in life has served me well.

    I hope this inspires you to consider options.

    Dogs in the Garden

    Dogs in the Garden

    Living with dogs and a garden can be harmonious, but it takes some work, it doesn't just happen. Because my goldens have always been a big part of my public life, I get lots of questions about how I managed to get them to be so well trained in the garden. 

    I am sharing my dog stories and the wisdoms that have been shared with me. I was so fortunate to have connected with such gifted dog people through the years. Steve and I, with our dogs live a great life together because of these women.  

    Enjoy.

Part of the secret sauce to a longer and easier season is to learn when to plant each group in your garden and to run with it!

    Special Edition: When You Close Your Eyes, Where Do You Go?

    Special Edition: When You Close Your Eyes, Where Do You Go?

    Where does your mind go when you close your eyes? What do you see? I see where flower farming has led me and I'm so happy to be here.

    Steve and I are both owners of small businesses. Like all business owners we have worked so hard, made sacrifices, and kept our heads down and continued doing it even when we didn't want too. 

    Now, as we are entering the time of life that we can stop peddling quite so hard, we are reaping the benefits of all of those years of hard work. Part of that is our forethought of building our farm assets for our golden years beyond the bank account. 

    We are working towards creating that place we see when we close our eyes.
