I know squash blossom can be eaten, however, I'm not sure about these. I'm looking for the information. If anyone here knows, feel free to let me know!

I’m sorry, Ryan. Mud is just the worst and some mud is worse than other mud....a muddled statement but you all know what I mean! ;)

Yes, Marsha, we do mow for hay! The fields are a mix of timothy, upland grass, clover, and some random alfalfa here and there - and an assortment of wild flowers that grow throughout the fields. In the heart of winter, when it is around 0 degrees Farenheit, I love seeing the dried flowers in a broken bale. It remains me that Spring always returns!

The ponies on the other hand just eat it all up without any reflections on nature! 🤣

I do remain profoundly grateful we have our own hay. That is a gift not to be taken for granted!

My tomatoes are coming on and I have carrots. My dogs ate all the peas... :(

My pumpkin plants aren't growing female flowers so I'm worried I'll have no pumpkins. Is there a trick to get them to grow fruit??

Yes, those who have their own hay have a blessing for sure!
