A quick note. I’ll be on Daytime TriCities this morning WJHL at 11 a.m. (Monday). If you’re free please join us!
I appreciate the slower pace that winter brings to our farm and appreciate also having time time to wander through the fields and rolling pastures. This winter for some reason I’m kind of obsessed with gathering weeds while I wander and creating wild and wooly bouquets, table pieces, and wreaths. Perhaps someone else who might not have the pleasure of owning a farm would like to come and wander with me and create a wild masterpiece along the way.
So, this Saturday, January 20th, from 2 to about 4 p.m. we’re inviting you to do just that. The high is forecast to be 53° with 0% chance of rain which should be ideal. Bring a vase or container of your choosing for a table piece, create a wreath with gathered vines, or shape a bouquet and tie with ribbon. Cost for the afternoon is $35 and because the turnaround time is short, no need to prepay. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org, or call or text 423-367-0361 by Thursday to check availability and reserve your spot.
Bring nippers if you have them and work gloves for something prickly. You will need to be able to walk the fields so please wear clothing that will allow that, including sturdy shoes or boots. We’ll begin at Aunt Willie’s house (207 Bruce Doan Rd, corner of Bruce Doan and Bondtown) and after we walk the fields there, we’ll likely drive to the Homeplace but there’re no enforcable rules for this one.
We look forward to spending some time with you and sharing the special beauty that graces our farm in the stillness of winter.
