Nearly Wordless Wednesday – March 21, 2012

Hello, spring!  The temperatures at 1840 Farm this week have been summer-like and we’re taking full advantage.  We’re constructing raised beds and installing them in the garden to expand our growing area.  We harvested some beautiful bearded iris (Iris germanica) bulbs that are available for sale at the farm.

Today, we’ll be starting the first flight of our vegetable, herb, and flower seeds.  Add in our daily farm chores, and we’ve been very busy farmers for the first week of spring.

Here’s a look at the raised beds in progress and a photo of the bearded iris in full bloom last season.  It won’t be long before we’ll be seeing these beautiful blooms in our flower beds.  I can’t wait!





  1. Wow, I can’t believe your Iris are blooming already.
    I live in NC and the leaves are just half way up.

      Carrie, They are not blooming already. Sorry for the confusion. The photo of the bearded iris in bloom was taken last season. I included it to show what they would look like when they bloomed. I’ll add that information into the post so as not to give anyone else unnecessary garden envy!

  2. Gorgeous flowers. your boxes look good, too. Good luck with them. :o)
