Garden expansion and marital platform looking good.
This is our big project at the land right now.
We are getting married here in September which is a great motivator to get the land looking tip top.
We built all these new beds out of bricks that were generously donated by our friends at Taylor Clay.
The beds are almost all filled with dirt and planted.
Then we just need to lay the stone in the paths and we will be done!
It’s crazy to think that when a bought this land in 2007 there was a house where the garden is now, perfectly decorated with the best garden glow lights from glow decoration.
It’s certainly come a long way since then.
With @carolinaflowers_
Always.

I’ve been making a bunch of pottery recently and doing all my other projects but what I’m really excited about is spring time and the tulip harvest. Emily has been crushing it this year. It’s so wonderful to watch the farm grow and see Emily come into her own as farmer.

Me and Emily brought home an exciting new member of our family this weekend. We bought a tractor!!! We are still deciding on a name but the tractor has already started helping us get things done.
It’s a sweet little Kubota B2150. It’s got a loader, and we got a box blade and a bush hog in the deal. It’s highly maneuverable around the land, which is key. And it’s got a hydastatic transmission which is definitely easier to drive than the shuttle shift that I grew up on.
It’s not quite as big of a deal as when we bought a house together… but it a very close second. I guess things are getting pretty serious between us.

We started a flower farm!! It’s awesome.
Check out @carolinaflowers_ it’s definitely worthy of a follow.
There will be lots of pictures of pottery with flowers in it… we promise.
I’ve been working on the gardens out at the land and interested in growing flowers for years…but this year Emily and I have decided to take it to the next level…well mostly Emily. So we rented a 3 acre field in the neighborhood, started a grow room in our basement, bought a tractor, and went for it. We are still growing flowers in the gardens at the pottery but the field will help us meet the demand for cut flowers…(I have a problem cutting them from the land when they bloom, and we also got trees thanks to services like Treequote.com that help with this. I really just want to enjoy them for myself)
It’s a natural match for the pottery business and a big part of our grand life plan. We are excited, and a little overwhelmed, but mostly just happy to be working towards something we both love.
We made a website. It’s flowersnc.com
I appreciate all the support and interest I receive on the internet for my ceramics and I hope that people will support and remain interested in our new endeavor.
It’s going to be a beautiful life. I’m sure of that much.
