Whipstone Farm: An Especially Cold Week Featured

Winter chill ❄

Big Idea

  • Very cold week!
  • Plenty of spinach, eggs, Napa cabbage, carrots
  • Lots of dried flowers
  • Come to the Prescott Farmer’s Market
  • Read more...

13º F is pretty darned cold!

It was an especially cold week. Like 13 degrees cold. In fact, some veggies we couldn't even harvest because they didn't thaw out over the last two days.

But we have plenty of spinach, eggs, napa cabbage and carrots along with all the roots, squashes and alliums to keep you satiated.

We also have lots of dried flowers. You can use these bundles of flowers to make a winter table arrangement, a wreath, wall hangings, or tiny bundles to top your Christmas gifts. Wreaths will be back next week.

Thanks to everyone who purchased a Thanksgiving box. They were a lot of fun to put together and it was very special for us knowing we were a part of so many people's holiday meals. We also shipped hot sauce boxes all across the country over the last week, which was so fun. I have restocked the hot sauce in our on-line shop. We will have it available until we run out of the chiles we need to make it, then we will have to wait until next fall. The hot sauce is available on our website (you can ship it anywhere in the US for now, and it makes a great gift) or at our farm stand. We won't have it at the farmers market, just FYI.

Stay warm this week! Time for soup and extra warm drinks and quiet time (or planting 12,000 tulips and 4,000 ranunculus - we got this!)

with love from your farmers,
Shanti & the Whipstone Crew

lots of dried flower bunches for all your winter decorating / crafting goals

Our crew has worked hard this year! Farm work is never easy, but the group effort and
positive attitudes has been extra this year. So this is a big shout out of gratitude to the
whole Whipstone Crew. Plus they model for me at the end of a long, cold, windy wintery work day.

 

got the kids to do some work (finally) while everyone else was on Thanksgiving break

the hot sauce phenomenon

we are still busy digging and dividing dahlias (but there is a light at the end of the tunnel) and
planting cool flowers, like the ones I cleaned out of these poppy pods
