July Blooms in My Cutting Garden

This year's summer flowers are blooming so wonderfully in my cutting garden.

It takes a lot of time to maintain a flower cutting garden this large - we're constantly weeding and watering, especially during these warm summer months. Before every season, my gardeners, Ryan and Wilmer, add a layer of nutrient-rich compost made right here at the farm. And every spring, we add more and more flowering plants - making this space a colorful mix of beautiful and interesting specimens. In only a few years, this garden has really developed into one of the most eye-catching areas of Cantitoe Corners. 

Right now, the beds are filled with poppies, lilies, rudbeckia, and shasta daisies - enjoy these photos.
