As soon as we had our first frost earlier this month, I started picking pumpkins and digging dahlias. I store the pumpkins in our house and barn and feed them to the chickens over the winter. I save the dahlia tubers to share with others and to start next spring’s garden.
My whole life I have been a practical gardener; growing vegetables, herbs and fruit to eat in great abundance. I dabbled in flowers, but nothing serious until my dad gave me some dahlia tubers gifted to him by the generous Sherry of Sherry’s Fresh Bouquets in Wenatchee, Washington. Now I grow flowers!!! Nothing floats my boat more than flowers these days. I grow hundreds of flowers. If you need beautiful, seasonal, flowers for your local event be sure to contact us at Goebel Hill Farm. I’d love to talk gardening with you! 🙂
