I run a plant and produce business with my father. Flowers, herbs, veggies, cooking, crafts. You name it, I've probably seen it, grown it, baked it, or made it! I own my own business as well, providing handmade jewelry and various crafts, and it's a busy life I lead! I am a vegetarian, so I'm quite often in the kitchen cooking up some fresh produce from the farmers' markets that I sell at. We're wrapping up what will make two years in the business, so we're definitely new and are always willing to listen to the advice of those that have been around much longer than we have. We've learned a lot, and continue to. We are constantly in the greenhouse or in a field, so it's a wonder I ever get a chance to touch my computer at all!
I am also an amateur photographer, and I enjoy writing as often as I can... If you are anywhere on or near the North Carolina East Coast, and are interested in buying more locally raised plants, feel free to send me a message and I will give you the link to our website as well as our Facebook page. We have large and small decorative planters with various flowers, hanging baskets, tray sales, our special butterfly planters, and even herb planters. As well as our signature "patio planters" , which are for people who simply want to step outside and pick a fresh tomato while on their porch, and especially for people who live in the city and only have a small patio but want to grow their own vegetables. We also do custom orders with no extra cost, and we also deliver within about an hour of our greenhouse. (delivery will cost extra)
Please don't forget: Support your local farmers, bakers, and crafters. Shop at your farmers' markets! I guarantee you'll have a much better time than at a grocery store, and you'll pay less, while getting so much more!
