Tulip Explosion

When a picture's worth a thousand words... tulip bundle

This has been so much fun harvesting armloads of flowers so early in the season! With our unheated hoophouse, we're able to harvest earlier crops than what's grown outside. Growing tulips this way has been a very successful experiment - and we'll be growing lots more for next year!

Back in the fall, when there was so much to do with putting the gardens to bed and winding down for the season, it was hard to make time to plant thousands of tulip bulbs. It was sure worth the effort though - a good reminder for other times when it's hard to push through with a big project in the middle of so much busy-ness... it will pay off in a future season, so push through.
