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.
All the onions are in the hoophouse drying just in case we ever get any rain. And Joel has been busy bagging up our 500 lb. crop of Stuttgarter onions these are the ones that will keep until March.
We also have a lot of Ailsa Craigs and Red Zeppelins that we'll sell before we get into the long term keepers. For all the weird weather, cool and wet until late July and no rain since, we've had a bumper crop of onion. Other things aren't as happy but that's frankly why we grow such a wide variety of vegetables. No matter what the weather throws at us something is happy.
The hoophouse also has piles of wheat and beans and various seed crops drying, too. We'll have lots of food to sell and eat this winter.
