Garden 2021- The Sunflower take-over

Sunflowers everywhere in the garden- 2021

We planted ornamental sunflowers one year to attract bees and now they are an invasive weed. This year we tried to use them as a wind block to the garden. They soaked up more water than prevented water evaporation. Now they are a pretty weed in our garden.


Kelly started new experimental planters on the Northside of the farm for herbs and heirloom seeds.

We added hundreds of flower bulbs in the fall! We’re excited to see what comes in in 2021.


We started Virginia Creeper along the deer fence line around the garden. On the same fenceline, we are trying to get Hollyhocks to grow. NO LUCK. Open to suggestions.
