Wow, almost 3 months since I have even attempted to write an entry!
I do try to get online and at least read some of my favorites in blog land.
But this summer sure has been an exceptionally busy one around here.
I read other bloggers entries,
they seem to be just as busy as myself.
I wonder how they do it all,
then have time to blog about it?
Something I am trying to work on!
Most of my summer seemed to be consumed with my new business,
I did quite a few vases of flowers for others.
My main focus of getting the word about my flowers came through a couple of local farmers markets.
The bouquets went fast most mornings.
As well as flowers I sold my homemade noodles and crusty breads.
The flowers and bread also did well at our local county fair.
We got a new addition to the farm!
Lilly the goat!
She was a 50th birthday present from the pipeliner.
Another project I would like to take on is making my own goats milk products.
I am still doing more research before this project starts.
We also had a wedding!
The daughter was married on October 1st.
I did all of the flowers for her wedding.
The weekend after the wedding was one of the biggest festivals I have taken on yet.
The foot traffic can be as many as 10,000 people!
No fresh cut flowers, something I need to plan better for next year.
But I sold out of all my bouquets of broom corn and pumpkins on a stick.
As well as 20 loaves of crusty bread!
What a busy day!
This big guy sure has grown into such a great helper!
I can hardly believe that he has started pre-school this fall!
This week is the first week that I wont have to think about getting anything ready for the farmers market. We had the season ending market on Saturday.
Now is the time to sit back and look over all of my notes that I took over the summer.
Figure out what didn't work,
expand on the things that did work.
Begin writing my business plan for next year.
I think all of that can wait for a week or two.
For now I am just going to relax for a little bit
Enjoy the view around me
