NEWS & INFORMATION ON WHAT'S HAPPENING AT KNOBSTONE FLOWER FARM
It’s easy to get caught up in the beauty and amazement of the summer flower season. Each new day brings witness to the wonderment of God’s gift of nature in all its glory. Yet all good things have an end and the arrival of the first frost brings a sudden halt to the magnificent bounty of flowers. From the flowers first blooms in June to the fading of late October, it is a rewarding yet extremely busy time. So with the frost and the end of the season does the flower farmer take a deep breath and finally relax? Well, I guess it possible, but for us it was definitely no!
Late fall and winter are the time for planning. It’s the time to determine what worked last season and more importantly what did not work well. Seeds are ordered in anticipation of the next season. Fall is the perfect time to plant cover crops that amend the soil. These cover crops in turn support the biodiversity needed for healthy and vibrant flowers next season. It’s the time to improve infrastructure and plan for future growth. It’s also the time to gaze out on the empty fields and dream of things yet to come!
The off-season at Knobstone Flower Farm has been a busy time of improvement and expansion. We have been diligently working since the time that our last customers came out to the farm in October.
Here is a sampling of a few of our off-season activities:
It can be almost overwhelming at times, but we have a vision that we continuously work towards as a goal for the coming season! We are committed to investing our time, labor and money with this vision of having one of the most unique and enjoyable friend and family experiences in Southern Indiana.
