It has been an insane week of holiday preparation around these parts!!
We started out last Wednesday by suiting up in full rain gear to gather a van load of greens for the 100+ centerpieces due out for Thanksgiving. With a winter storm warning in the near future we had to rush and get all of our outside ingredients collected before temperatures plummeted and the task became impossible. It was a freezing day filled with wet everything, frozen fingers and exhausted kids. But we managed to get it all done!
Earlier in the week I ordered the most exquisite Roses from Peter Kort Roses in Portland , Oregon. They are delicate, fragrant and sustainably grown !
This red Rose, ‘Piano’ was to die for !
Peppers from our greenhouse made every bouquet sparkle. I thought this was a lost crop since none of the fruit ripened during our main sales season. But when I peeked in the the hoop last week low and behold these were waiting to be harvested. So fun!
