Things from the Herb Garden (Woodwynn Peace Garden)

July 12, 2017

 

It is incredibly beautiful right now. And especially satisfying to be harvesting products, like bundles of herbs, for the market!

Perfect summer day at Woodwynn Farms

June 24, 2017

I don’t need to say much here, the photos show how full and beautiful our time at the farm can be. It is truly a garden of peace. Hay has been cut. Wild flowers are blooming. The sage is lush, the lavender is dense, we see green blueberries that will soon ripen and kiwi flowers that will eventually be delicious fruit. And so much more!


Autumn at Woodwynn

Just a few misty pictures from the past week 🙂

As always, we find peace in this place and we are grateful…

End of June – Woodwynn Peace Garden

June 30, 2016

Something new from Deryk….  this one didn’t “get away!)

(We’re watching the movie “Big Fish” to celebrate.)

We had a warm spring so perhaps the timing will be different in future years, but this year, June was an amazing time of colour in the Peace Garden. The lavender bloomed all month and many of the sage plants bloomed as well. We actually expected all of the sage plants to flower but it seemed to be pretty random. Perhaps since they are still really relatively new plants (just a year old) it will take time for them to all flower or perhaps there will always be some plants that don’t flower in a given year.

Apple tree lane is thick with apples that are full size and quite red at this point and beautiful pink poppies appeared by magic near the meditation nest.

We’ve kept up with the watering. We’ve almost kept up with the weeding….

We never stop appreciating the beauty of the location and we are always grateful to be a part of the farm!

And there are interesting developments around the farm outside of the Peace Garden as well 🙂
