Sunflower Field 2022

Sunflowers. They just make you smile. I had sunflowers in my bouquet on our wedding day and the sight of them brings back nostalgia of Bryce and I's relationship.

He bought be a bouquet for my birthday once when we lived in a trailer park in San Diego and he made us a steak dinner to celebrate. My mom, almost-sister-in-law (at the time) had bought me a bouquet for my college graduation. I routinely bought a bouquet every time I shopped at Trader Joe's.

They always stand out, look bold and carried a uniqueness that I will never get tired of. 

A few years ago, we grew a hop yard. Bryce had been experimenting on growing barley, wheat and hops to prepare for craft beer a few years back. We did end up floor malting the grain and harvesting the hops a few years in a row. However, we let it go as we developed new business ventures. This space has water and old irrigating we could utilize and I loved the idea of bringing it back to life in a new way.

A sunflower field. I am imaging a field with several varieties of sunflowers to enjoy. We tore out the old drip lines, re-disked the area and started planting mid-March 2022. We are spacing out our planting every two weeks to have a longer growing season.

We are finishing up planting in the next week or so and can't wait to see the flowers bloom!

We are hoping to have by appointment only, U-Pick sunflowers, bouquet classes, dinner events, yoga in the field and more! Now, help us pray to the flower Gods that they grow!
