This week for the first time, i've really felt like flower farming is my proper job, - rather than something i'm just doing in my spare time.
On Monday, - I made my first English flower sheaf, for a real customer, that i'd never met before. - She'd found me through Facebook contacts, and was giving a handmade Sussex Trug basket to a friend for a special birthday, and could I do a sheaf of English flowers to go in it. - Well, I could, and I did, but in my excitement, I forgot to take a photo!, - so you'll have to make do with photos, of the flowers i've got coming on in the Polytunnel, and those I took to my son's school fair on Saturday.
Yes that is the first Sweet peas, - Variety Beaujolais, - Sown on the 11th November, in Root trainers.- I'm hoping for lots more of them over the next few weeks.The scent was amazing, and I took it to the fair, to show it off.
And i've still got this lot to go out on the field, before my Opening event on Friday.
