Visiting Chimney Bluffs State Park

Right around the corner from the flower farm is a hidden gem of a state park. Chimney Bluffs State Park is a landscape on the south shores of Lake Ontario carved out by years of water and wind chipping away at the cliffs edge. The Park is right between the cities of Rochester and Syracuse with about an hour drive either direction, and located in the town of Huron. The Park is open year-round dawn to dusk, but Lake Ontario is pretty scary place to be around in the winter, so I suggest visiting during one of the other three seasons if you are looking to hike the trail. The wintertime is nice for a snowshoe or cross-country ski. There...

The Benefits of Hot Lemon Water

This week I wanted to talk about one of my new favorite drinks, hot lemon water.  I know it does not sound like much, but now I find myself really looking forward to my morning or end of the day lemon water. I used to drink tea every night, which was alright. But tea has caffeine in it and is not ideal to drink before you go to bed. So after watching one of the ranching accounts, I follow on Instagram make a hot lemon water I figured I would give it a try, and now I can say I am hooked. It is super simple to make. I have an electric kettle that I warm some water with. Then...

The Flower’s Journey: From Seed to Vase

The flowers that you see on the stand all come right from the farm. That process starts with buying seed and ends with being displayed at your home! So today I am going through the “life of the flower” explaining what goes into getting that seed to your vase! During the late fall months, the seed catalogs start to arrive. Each year it seems that I have to order seeds earlier and earlier because of the limited supply. That is a good sign, people are gardening again! I review tons of catalogs and online shops to find the seeds that I will grow for the next season. It is always a mix of the tried-and-true flowers, and some new test...
