The Crop Report | Jess Reporting Back for Blog Duty

It's me, hi, I'm the problem, it's me. Have you missed seeing The Crop Report? I've missed more than just a few weeks now and poor Catherine was wondering if I was ever going to send her another farm update again. I've been pulling farm double time and running a hectic schedule that things like the Crop Report fell to the bottom of my priority pile but only for lack of time.

However, I'm back baby and the team is doing an amazing job of giving me some much-needed time back to make sure things like the Crop Report don’t fall to the side again!  While I've been digging out from under old emails, the barn has been filled with holiday cheer (and as many patio heaters as we can cram in there). 

The crew has been cranking out piles of the most amazing holiday wreaths you have EVER seen.  Seriously, these are beyond gorgeous this year, and not only can you swing by the barn, select your own from the barn wall, and even add embellishments to customize your own but these beauties are shipping all over the country and spreading some good ole fashioned Virgina Holiday cheer and make THE perfect gift! 

I love them so much I've snagged two for my house and you should too. Here is a sweet little coupon code for the first person who purchases a Deluxe Wreath… Use promo code HOLIDAYJESS for 20% your deluxe greenery wreath at checkout!

Between the wreaths, garland, and OMG holiday sap buckets (check out those pine cones y'all!) The farm looks so festive and cheerful!  We haven't JUST been playing elves though, the farm is AHEAD OF SCHEDULE. Somebody please write that down because I'm pretty sure it's the first time that has EVER happened.  I give credit to our incredible team and ultimately Elizabeth, we love her so much!

The anemone, poppies, and ranunculus are all planted.  The bulb crops are all processed and stored, while the lissies have been removed and house beds are being scheduled for amendments and December plants.  It's been a flurry of behind-the-scenes work and I'm quite proud to see how much has been accomplished at the tail end of the year. 

We have been tending to our mother Chrysanthemum stock and tidying up the last of the farm while leaf load after leaf load arrives from our community.  While Thanksgiving has passed the feelings of gratitude hold strong on this farm.  It certainly takes a village and I'm glad this is mine.
