Lol! Just a thought! Hee!
I picked up 2 beautiful bouquets this morning! Love your farm shop store. Super cute ! Cya at the market Saturday morning 😉
Hi there! Will you be at Vine Street Market next Saturday (8/7)? If so, will you have your goats milk lotion? I purchased some and love it and am running out 😊
When time permits we schedule visits to our vendors farms or businesses. Today led us to Bossler Gardens and Simple Gifts flower farms, both third year vendors at the market. It was a wonderful visit, not just because of the flowers but because of the stories behind these businesses, most importantly the people behind the flowers.
When you visit Bossler’s you’ll feel like a part of the family. Conversation, laughter and guests flow through the flower shed with ease and you can feel the family history in the very soil you walk on.
When you step out at Simple Gifts you see and feel the dedication of a woman who wanted to farm. A lot of hard work, research, trial and error has gone in to the flowers she brings to market. She utilizes permaculture practices and let’s her ducks, guinea, chickens, sheep and dogs help with the pest control in the flowers.
Most days it’s good to be a farmers market manager, today it was great. 💐
I barely made it to Vine Street Market before the happy snapdragons were gone 💛💜💚
This is sooo exciting! Now you can get your Simple Gifts Flower Farm fix between markets!

I originally thought when you got a livestock guardian like a Great Pyrenees, you could just put them with your animals and they knew what to do…. not the case! While they do have a lower pray instinct than other breeds it takes years of training and calming down for a guardian to be considered reliable. What you are seeing here took a while. ❤️

Happy Thanksgiving! Wishing you a year of blessings!

Thanksgiving flowers are still available for preorder on the website. They make a great hostess gift as well. Pictured is a large bouquet and a small one for reference. 🦃

This picture is from last spring. ❤️ Last year I took a course on how to grow tulips in the winter. Well.. to clarify, how to make tulips bloom in the winter. There are crates and crates planted up and ready to head to the greenhouse so that they bloom in time for my new winter flower card membership, “Tulip Tuesdays”. Can you think of anything better than blooms in the freezing cold of February? I am pretty excited about it 🌷

11/15/2022

Thanksgiving bouquets are available for order on our website along with many other things I am super excited about! Click on the link for more info

It was a busy day of fall clean up at the farm and getting ready for the cold. 78 yesterday and possible snow tonight? Wowzers! Thanks to my son and Brian for making the day so much easier. I am IN LOVE with these Chrysanthemums! Want some for your Thanksgiving table? I will be taking orders this year. The arrangement options will go live on Monday morning. Hope you are snuggled in tight and ready for the cold. ❤️

Farm Happenings! ❤️ Winston got out today ☹️ Thanks to my neighbors and the thoughtful police woman for calling to let me know about the dog sighting. Thanksgiving flowers are looking lovely and hoop house number three is on its way up.

The mums are looking beautiful in the hoop!

I planted the last of the tulips in the ground tonight! Yippy! A work friend asked me today why I need to replant tulips ever year. Read on for a little tulip education. ☺️
🌷The reason is because when flower farmers harvest tulips we actually pull the tulip out of the ground with the bulb connected.
🌷We can then store them up to a month in the cooler with the bulb attached.
🌷It also gives the flowers a longer stem length than if we were to cut them.
🌷Since the tulips are pulled so early there is no opportunity for the leaves to soak up all of the sunshine that is needed to make the bulb viable for the following year since all of the nutrients are stored in the bulb through the leaves for the following season.
🌷While it may seem like it’s a better idea to leave them in the ground, there is no guarantee that they will return the following year with a flower as lovely as the year before.
🌷 Since flower farmers sell these blooms, it’s important to have a high quality bloom every year. 🌷

What better way to spend a cloudy afternoon than to take selfies with the sheep? ❤️

10/29/2022

Happy Saturday! Today is the last day the Farm Shop will be open for the season and then everything will move to online ordering and Farm pick up on Fridays. There are chrysanthemum jars, Evening Rose face cream, Lavender bath soaks, Sugar Scrubs, Goats Milk lotions, and Dad’s birdhouses in there. I didn’t get the bath bombs done last night due to rubbery arms from tulip trench digging ☹️ but I will have them on the website on Monday for order. I just want to say thank you so much for coming out to the farm this year! I am going to miss seeing you! You have made a difference in our small farm and my family and I appreciate you even more than you know. ❤️

Photos from Simple Gifts's post 10/28/2022

Today we dug a trench for planting the tulips and put up enough hay for the sheep for the winter. 🐑 We are tired! Thanks to the Mountain Man and .marie03 for the amazing help!

10/27/2022

🌷 Fall projects are well under way and as the regular season wraps up I just want to thank this awesome chick for all of her help this year. Thanks .marie03!, I couldn’t have made it through the season nearly as smoothly without you. Erica kept things running smoothly while I was at work, was my right hand gal in the heat, in the rain, and in the wind. We have had so many adventures this season and more laughs than I can count. She is creative and fun and clever and all of the good things and has kept me going when I get overwhelmed. I am going to miss her this winter! ❄️

🌷 This is the last week the Farm Shop will be open for the year. Tomorrow we will have a restock on lotion ( First Frost and a new one called Winter Delight), Lavender Bath salts, and $10 Chrysanthemum jars.

🌷 Friday we will have Rose Moisturizer made from roses on the farm in the Shop

🌷Saturday we add bath bombs in five different fragrances to the Farm Shop

I will have flowers hopefully through Thanksgiving and will move all bath products and flowers to our online Shop for Friday farm pick ups .

10/26/2022

2023 Flower Card memberships are available on our website. The first ten members to sign up will receive a $10 gift card. The first wave of membership cards go out tomorrow if you already ordered! Thanks for supporting the farm ya’ll! Here is the link if you are interested in signing up 🌷 https://www.simplegiftsflowerfarm.com/the-farm-store

10/23/2022

The barn makeover is coming along. ❤️ What do you think of the blue?

🌷 Happy Friday! It’s the last call for Dahlias and they are in the Farm Shop today until 7pm. We will be closed tomorrow and will reopen Thursday of next week. Have a great day! 🌷

Photos from Simple Gifts's post 10/20/2022

Happy Thursday! The flowers I have available for the week are in the Farm Shop today and they are beautiful!!!! I didn’t get the bath products restock done. That will have to be for next week, but for this week, enjoy the last of the Dahlias. I will post if we sell out. ❤️

10/19/2022

The cold has done in the Dahlias but I snagged this bucket of beauties before the cold hit and have had them in the cooler so they can be in the Farm Shop tomorrow for you! The Farm Shop is open 8am -6pm tomorrow. ❤️

Photos from Simple Gifts's post 10/17/2022

Yesterday was a wrap on Vine Street Market for the season. I am going to miss seeing all of my Market friends every Saturday! Thank you so much for coming out to support me, our farm, and local flowers. You are the reason I keep coming year after year and week after week. ❤️

The Farm Shop will open on Thursday with a restock of beauty products and we will see how the flowers go. We are going to get three nights in the twenties and I am unsure how it will all pan out even in the hoop house. I will keep you posted! ❤️

Photos from Simple Gifts's post 10/15/2022

Happy Saturday! I am up until noon today with some of the prettiest flowers of the season, Dahlias and Eucalyptus! The Farm Shop is closed this week but will open on Thursday with a restock of all beauty products and the first of the Chrysanthemums of the season. Hope you enjoy this gorgeous day!

Photos from Simple Gifts's post 10/13/2022

Tonight I am inside my covered flower forest harvesting Dahlias for the last regular market of the season at Vine Street Market on Saturday. The Farm Shop is closed this week but will reopen next Thursday with Chrysanthemums. I was going to move everything to online ordering but I think it might get too complicated. :)

Photos from Simple Gifts's post 10/13/2022

And the hoop house is up! I couldn’t have done it without my son Alex, the Mountain Man Brian, who put together all of the hoops and muscled through the hard stuff, and Erica who helped set the foundation, and put on the plastic and rope today. I don’t know if you noticed, but there was a little wind this afternoon. Not the best day to put 88 feet of plastic on a giant metal structure with only two people, but through sheer determination and orneriness we did it! To commemorate this achievement, Erica and I decided to take a series of super dorky pictures. Enjoy! 😂

Photos from Simple Gifts's post 10/11/2022

Got the center beam done today and side braces complete. It looks like rain is moving in and we need it so bad. I just wish it would wait one more day so I can get the plastic on this thing, but Mother Nature is not interested in my hopes and wishes. 😂

Photos from Simple Gifts's post 10/09/2022

It was a busy day putting up hoop house number two! There is still much work to do but we are well on our way! 🌷

Photos from Simple Gifts's post 10/08/2022

Happy Saturday! Tonight is the Witches and Wizards night in downtown OFallon and we are getting in the mood here at Vine Street Market. Today I have all of the goods! Farm Shop and Flower Stand open at 1 pm today.

10/07/2022

🌷 Good morning! It’s the last Friday of the Flower Stand season with an expected frost headed our way this weekend. We are open 8am-6pm today. 🌷

10/07/2022

Tomorrow and Saturday are the last days the Flower Stand will be open for the season. It looks like there is a good chance of frost on Friday and Saturday night. While I will have Chrysanthemums available from the hoop until Thanksgiving, the field flowers will be done once that first frost hits. Come grab one more jar and wish farewell to the field beauties of summer. I will miss them! ❤️

10/06/2022

The Flower Stand will be closed today but open again tomorrow. Please message me if you needed flowers today and you can certainly pick up after four today!

10/04/2022

Flower Card membership is open for the 2023 season. Click on the link to read more if you are interested and ask questions here if you have them. ☺️ https://www.simplegiftsflowerfarm.com/the-farm-store

Photos from Simple Gifts's post 10/04/2022

Today Erica and I started laying the ground work for hoop house number two! The difference between a hoop house and a greenhouse is that a greenhouse is heated. Waiting on my building permit to come through and up she will go! 🌷

Photos from Simple Gifts's post 10/03/2022

It was a busy day at the farm with a make-up wreath workshop with three super fun gals, a little barn painting got done, and I got to hang out with my favorite fuzzies! I hope you had a great Sunday!

Photos from Simple Gifts's post 10/01/2022

Good Morning from Vine Street Market! The Flower Stand is stocked and I am at market with pumpkin arrangements, mixed fall bouquets, and all of the goodies. Market left overs go into the Farm Shop at one o clock. Flower Card membership for the 2023 season is open on the website and also available at market. Have a great day!

Photos from Simple Gifts's post 09/30/2022

A lovely little arrangement I made for a special order tonight. It won’t be too many more weeks that the field flowers will be with us. First frost generally hits around October 15th. The cool temperatures make me worry it will be sooner.

Photos from Simple Gifts's post 09/28/2022

We had a great time at the Designing with Dahlias event here in the Farm Shop last night. ❤️

09/27/2022

There are still a few spots left for the Designing with Dahlias workshop tomorrow evening from 7:00 - 8:30 pm in the Farm Shop. We will be making a large floral arrangement to take home using Dahlias as the focal flower, with seasonal foliage, and some other lovelies as support flowers. If you enjoy playing with flowers this is one you will enjoy! Registration is on the website and closes at noon tomorrow so we know how much to harvest.

Photos from Simple Gifts's post 09/26/2022

A few pictures from last night’s You-Pick. Lovely evening and lovely folks! Thanks for coming everyone!

09/24/2022

My stall looks like a fall Cracker Barrel here this morning! Farm Shop opens at 1pm today. Have a beautiful Saturday!

09/23/2022

Happy Friday! The Flower Stand is stocked and open until 6pm today! The Farm Shop is closed until tomorrow at 1pm. Erica and I will be busy in the Farm Shop this afternoon getting all of the flowers ready for tomorrow. Wait until you see all of the fall colors and texture. A taste of it is on the Stand today! 🍁
