And suddenly, it’s fall.  It seems ages ago that we were harvesting crates of tulips and bundling up to bring bouquets to market.  Now we are thinking of pulling out those long-sleeves as the forecast calls for change.

This week we labeled all the dahlias preparing ourselves for an upcoming frost and we started to excavate some of the largest sweet potatoes we’ve ever grown.

Updates from the farm:

You can reserve your space in the 2019 Stonecrop Flower Share here.  Don’t miss out as folks are purchasing their flower subscription earlier than ever before.  There are three options to fit your budget and schedule.  Find out more HERE.

For more immediate needs, Stonecrop Farm offers Homecoming corsages and boutonnieres for our friends in Blacksburg.  It’s a special treat and a bit of a panic to create these special pieces for the kids you’ve known since toddler-hood.  Before we know it, we’ll be asked to create their wedding flowers. Call us at 540-599-0839 or email stonecropfarmers@gmail.com to order yours.

Speaking of weddings, there are dates booked in the 2019 wedding calendar.  As the season slows down, we have time to sit down and talk about dreamy wedding bouquets.  Get in touch to schedule your consultation.

Otherwise, we are working hard to maintain tidiness, keep up with the harvest, and make sure the fall plantings make it into the ground in a timely manner.   Get a peek at some recent pictures here.

Come find the bounty of the harvest at the Wednesday (12 to 6) and Saturday (8 to 2) Blacksburg Farmers Markets.  Our bouquets are delivered to Our Daily Bread every Wednesday afternoon.  

Thank you to our amazing community for a record breaking season!
