Pumpkin Succulent Workshop

]Autumn brings with it the opportunity for so many wonderful activities and memories to make with family and friends. So, when my son gave me the idea of crafting pumpkin succulents, it definitely gave me something to think about.

Now for those that know me, I’m usually not a workshop type of gal and actually hosting an event like this here at the farm was way out of my comfort zone. However, I kept going back to the idea, thought it sounded fun and might be something others would enjoy too. Not only was it the perfect time of year, but it was also different than other types of workshop activities I had gone to in the past.

When I first announced the pumpkin succulent workshop, honestly, I wasn’t expecting a huge response, but by golly was I wrong. Not only was it a great success, but so much fun getting to know the ladies that attended in a fun group laid back setting.  In fact, it was so well-liked, that we announced a second workshop and I joyfully received even more interest and enthusiasm from you all.

Reflecting back on the events, I am proud of myself for having the courage to step outside my comfort zone, take on something new and seeing it through. Not only that, it was a success that I could be proud of and a great life lesson for my eight-year-old son. I also have a renewed love for gardening and look forward to what else that will invoke.

I want to sincerely thank each and every one of you that attended the workshop events. It was a pleasure getting to know you all better. And for those that have asked about additional workshop dates, we intend on offering them again next year!

Blessings,

Goodness, I love how the sun is beaming thru my windows this beautiful Monday morning. I just can’t contain the joy it makes me feel. I’m watching Ellis, our one-year old kitten, nap on the buffalo plaid down curled up with such sweetness on our quaint brass bed from the 1930’s. I’m reminded how blessed I am and want to keep hold of moments such as this.

Just a few moments later I’m up, apron on and ready to plant some pretty flowers by our new trough pool, perfect for farm life. If you want the perfect place to cool off this summer, you can see how I installed our stock tank pool. It will truly be a life saver in the dog days of summer and besides being adorable, it’s affordable. To compliment the space, my sweetheart, Donovan, just built this deck around the pool for us to make family memories and thought y’all might enjoy it or find some inspiration.

 I can’t be happier that Spring is finally here. The winter been long and riddled with unrelenting illness and some idleness here at the farm. But with the warm weather and blooms brings new life to our little farm in the city and I’m joyful to announce that Wheat Brothers Farms is opening for the season on May 1st!

We have a new little new cobblestone pathway inspired from our European holiday last summer, new merchandise, including vintage inspired aprons, tea towels and jewelry, and one noticeably new addition is our vintage horse trailer, Longhorn Coffee Bar and Saloon. If you’re in the neighborhood or wanderin’ about downtown Medford, come on by. Pick up a coffee, a fresh pie and a sweet gift for yourself or someone special.  

You all are going to love our new items, perfect for Mother’s Day gifts or a special occasion. Our sweet apron collection is inspired by my great granny Ayers. She was a special lady, full of spitfire and grace, as well as the most knowledgeable chicken farmer this side of the Mississippi. My Great Granny Ayers apron collection are handcrafted and handstitched originals, just like she was.

Looking forward to seeing y’all at the farm. We’ll be open starting on Wednesday, 10am-2pm. So be sure to come on by and take a peek at what we have been doing here at Wheat Brothers Farms and Longhorn Coffee Bar and Saloon. The front porch and some sweet tea are here waiting’ for ya.

Blessings,
