Touring the Flower Fields

Last week we had the pleasure to tour Congressman Darrell Issa’s Legislative Assistant Adaline “Abby” Maushardt around our flower fields. Our tour started with a trip to our packing house where I showed Abby some of my favorite summertime flowers and foliage – certainly a great introduction to our “Protea World”. 

Then up into the hills of Rainbow we ventured. Our first stop was Rainbow Crest, where we paused to take pictures and to enjoy a spectacular view of the flower fields. 

Our next stop was a 13 acre parcel I recently acquired. This property is currently in "stage 1"of field development - clearing and mulching. This first stage is definitely the most difficult part of starting a new flower field. Seeing a field go from brush to blooms definitely gives you an appreciation for the flowers we grow and what it takes to get them from the field to the table.
