Farm Walk

It's starting to feel like fall around here - just a tiny bit.  It was so hot for so long that I could hardly believe it was October, but all of a sudden we're getting a hint of fall.  A few leaves are falling, and the nights are cooler, and we're all loving it.  (click title to continue reading)

Farm Walk

Today was one of those impossibly blue North Carolina days.  Not a cloud in the sky, and combined with all of our recent rain, everything's looking lush.  Perfect time for a farm walk.

The Seeds Are Here!

In a moment that feels like coming home again, I am so happy to offer our heirloom flower seeds in the shop.  Spotted Dog Farm started as a cut flower farm - after working as a business attorney and taking time off to have our son, I decided my return to the work force would be as a flower farmer.  Because... well, honestly just because I loved flowers and wanted to grow them.  So that's what I did.
