January 2020 - Life on the Funny Farm

Ramblings of a Flower Farmer

Michigan Flower Farm

Winter has been pretty gentle on us this year.

Happy New Year!

I hope everyone is excited about 2020 and welcoming the new year with enthusiasm and many hopes and dreams for a happy, healthy and prosperous year.

So far this winter has been kind to us. After getting slammed in November, then having fall in December, we’ve had a relatively easy time of it so far. Lets hope spring comes in a sane fashion this year!

I’m finally catching up on some website work this month. I wear a lot of hats, and it's been kind of difficult to jump back on this horse! I've forgotten a lot about web design since last winter! Writing is also a difficult horse to get back on. Am I saying too much? Not enough? Am I boring the heck out of everyone? (Can I cuss?) I also started with just one page, our Florist's Price List, and ... like a lot of my projects have a habit of doing, it just keeps growing. I hope it is useful, ramblings and all. I can't swear I'll keep it updated through the growing months, but I always love to think so.

I’ve been able to spend some time with my dad and his wife lately. Every other week I head out to their house in Willis to do a few chores, load their indoor wood rack, and visit for a while. I wish they lived closer.

Seed starting has begun! Much later than usual due to the fact I cut back on some varieties that require a long lead time to grow. I can’t believe how excited I am! It seems I needed an extra month or so to regroup this year, and although I am glad I made that decision, I am very ready to get growing!

What a way to brighten the January spirits! I received the most pleasant surprise from Nothing Bundt Cakes! I had planned to share them with some friends coming to visit, but when I opened the box and they were gone, gone, gone! That attests to how fabulous they are (ahem...were). I won’t say who ate them all in one day, but it wasn’t Charlie and I only had a little teeny taste of frosting. They are (ahem...were) apparently as heavenly delicious as beautiful! Thank you!

Speaking of Charlie, he misses you all! He's a bit tired of boring 'ol mom. Spring is coming! We both hope to see you soon!
