This Saturday will be our last market day of the season. We're cutting our very last plantings of sunflowers and celosias this week. We have zinnias, tuberose, ageratum, plus a few dahlias and cosmos to go with them.

We hope you can make it down to the Bardstown Rd. Farmers Market this weekend for the last of our late October flowers and bouquets.

Thanks for joining us this season on our Kentucky flower farm!

winter annuals
These tiny winter annuals will hunker down over the winter, slowly growing roots. Dianthus, cornflowers, larkspur, bupleurum, and other winter annuals will be among the earliest flowers we cut in the spring. Wish them luck!

As our harvest season inevitably winds down in October, the colors of our summer annuals grow deeper and richer. Our flowers grow and develop more and more slowly in the cooler temperatures and shorter days.

We'll have sunflowers, tuberose, festive zinnias, vibrant celosias, and more fresh cut Kentucky grown flowers this weekend at the Bardstown Rd. Farmers Market.

Hope to see you there!

Dahlia - Karma Corona

We've got pawpaws again this week, and mixed bouquets in warm fall colors. We don't grow a lot of dahlias, just a handful for our mixed bouquets. But this is the time when they bloom best on our farm, during the mild fall weather at the end of the season. Our favorite dahlia has beautiful sunset colors just right for this time of year.

We hope you'll stop by the Bardstown Road Farmers Market this Saturday!

See you there!

Pawpaws!

We're grinnin' like a possum in a pawpaw patch! For the next few weeks we will have our large and luscious pawpaws at the market.

Pawpaws are truly a unique local and seasonal treasure in our region. They're the northernmost relative of a tropical genus. They have a smooth, creamy texture and a sweet tropical flavor that is uniquely its own. Pawpaws on the counter can fill a room with their bright, sweet fragrance.

Peeled pawpaws can be eaten out of hand like the possum does, or its thick creamy pulp can be used in baking, smoothies, ice cream, and other prepared foods. They ripen just during a few weeks in the fall, and they don't have a very long fresh storage life. But the pulp can be frozen for use year round.

If you're a pawpaw fan - or just curious - now's the time to enjoy this native Kentucky tree fruit!

See you on Saturday!

It seems like fall crept up on us this week without warning, and suddenly it's all brisk mornings and cool nights and crisp air. Even the light is changing.

Colors deepen in the fall. Yellows go golden, red and orange flowers glow with warmth, and every color shimmers with a certain late season intensity.

We hope to see you this Saturday with all the warm fall colors from our Kentucky flower farm!

In the late summer, we rely more and more on succession plantings of summer annuals like zinnias, sunflowers, and celosias. We plant a lot of different crops every week or two throughout the summer so that we always have these summer annual flowers ready to cut.

Cosmos

cosmos

Cosmos are a uniquely local cut flower. You won't find them on the mass market because they're just too fragile to ship or store for long periods of time. We cut our cosmos "in the bud", even before the petals unfurl, for the best quality and vase-life. The buds crack and open very quickly, and the flowers will last about a week in clean water.

Cosmos give a cottage garden charm to your home, either mixed into bouquets or in a vase on their own. They have big, open, colorful flowers, delicate, lacy foliage, and a gracefully arching, looping form.

Cosmos are in particularly good form this week. Look for them amongst the sunflowers, zinnias, cockscomb, ageratum, tuberose, and other summer annuals from Falling Springs Flowers at the Bardstown Road Farmers Market on Saturday.

See you there!

We had a little rain earlier this week, followed by cooler temperatures. It's put just a little more shine on all of our flowers! You'll see big flowers with bold colors at the market on Saturday.

We've got plenty of tuberose again this week, as well as a great selection of cockscomb celosia. Cockscombs are very long-lasting flowers with glowing jewel-like colors that seem to be lit from within. It's a beautiful and unusual cut flower that doesn't really stand up that well to mass market transport, making it more of a local specialty, and one of our favorites.

We hope you'll make it to the Bardstown Road Farmers Market on this beautiful weekend to stock up on fresh, local food and get your local and sustainable fresh flowers and bouquets from Falling Springs Flowers.

See you there!
