Thousand Flower Farm is located on Waldron Island in the San Juan Islands of Washington State. We grow vegetables, fruit, and flowers, raise sheep, weave rugs and knit hats for sale mainly in Friday Harbor, WA on nearby San Juan Island.
Got a 60 foot bed of stocks planted today. There'll be one more type planted down the very middle but those plants aren't quite ready to go in the ground. These 4 rows are the single stemmed florist type of stocks, probably my all time favorite flower if I were ever forced to choose a favorite. The middle row will have the branching sort. The latter doesn't make as nice flowers or stems but last longer into the season so I plant some of them for when the single stemmed ones are all gone.
In the cold frames are small flats of more flowers just waiting for the soil to dry out enough to be tilled so they can be planted. Oh, I love this time of year.
