Open Patch Dates posted

June 5th, 2012

Welcome to “Open Patch” days at His Glories Farm!

Please make plans to attend one of our open house dates and see all the gardens, the flowers and the small animals for yourself.  Because of the early Spring, some of our daylily varieties have begun to bloom – thankfully, they will continue over the next month.  So with each visit to the Farm you will notice the change of colors.

For our Open Patch days, we schedule time in the gardens as you would- early evening (4 to 7 p.m.) and mornings (8 a.m. to Noon).  If those times don’t work for you, please contact Vanessa (217-343-7731) as she will be glad to arrange to meet you there at a time that works for you.

And, yes- if you see plants you would like to purchase, we will dig them for you right then.

Looking forward to seeing each of you soon!

P.S.  Watch for the baby guineas- and hopefully soon, baby ducklings too!

We are so thankful for the rain this past weekend!  The gardens look so refreshed, and it is amazing to watch the new growth that comes in just one day.

New to the Spring Sale at Vanessa’s this weekend is the Indigo Rose Tomato.  Indigo Rose is the first high-anthocyanin tomato commercially available anywhere in the world.   We are so excited to give this tomato a try in our own gardens and want to offer you the chance to grow it too.
