To be honest, I didn’t notice the weeds. All I saw were rows of flowers as visions of beautiful arrangements, centerpieces and photo vignettes danced in my head. Oh how I would love to walk out my door and have my choice of gorgeous blooms to cut!
We talked and toured for about an hour as they explained their planting strategy, how they overcame the issue of a very short growing season by using greenhouses and hoop houses and succession planting techniques. We discussed at length what flowers grow best in this climate and the hardiness and fragility of certain plants. (For those of you who are interested Belgrade, Montana is in growing zone 4B.)
I saw several flower varieties I had never seen before and was fascinated by the “local and seasonal” aspect of their farm.
