A lot of work goes on in the month of November for us to transition our greenhouse from a fall festive destination to a winter wonderland for December.
Just because it’s winter and your landscape is put to rest doesn’t mean gardening has to stop. It is a perfect time to add some beautiful color and texture with an arrangement of winter containers, wreaths, kissing balls, swags or anything your heart may desire.
The English may have given us the Kissing Bough but it was the Northern Europeans who began the tradition of the decorated Christmas tree. Nearly all species of evergreens are used for Christmas trees.
The Engelmann’s spruce (Picea engelmanii) is seldom planted and seen in the Midwest, although an example of this slender pyramidal evergreen tree, which is much more graceful than the widely planted Colorado spruce, can be seen and admired at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum.
Find out what is happening around the market in November!
Another year comes and goes as the last of the pumpkins are put out to pasture. We have squash left to sell well into December and some cabbage left to be harvested along with a bit of field corn to be combined.
Zach is a jack of all trades around the market and can be depended on to excel at customer service and fix anything we throw at him! His positive attitude and shining personality make him a joy to work with.
Thanks to everyone for their participation, with all the great submissions it was difficult to choose the winners!
