My name is Karin and I am starting a new journey toward operating a small specialty cut flower farm in West Tennessee. There are sure to be many ups and downs along the way and this is in essence my foot taking the first step forward. I will be here talking about a variety of ideas and lessons, some of which I have learned while approaching my 7th year of floral design and a degree based in art, psychology, and education, and of course some of which I am sure to learn beginning my first year as a flower farmer. This is the space where intend to find my voice just as this article from one of the finest examples in the slow flower and farmer-florist movement Erin Benzakein explains . I just so happen meeting her at Floret Flower Farm in three short weeks… things are about to get even more crazy and beautiful on this blog.
The photos above were taken this summer and unretouched. They are of the very first precious garden roses offered by our 30 plants this year. May the feast of flowers grow for years to come here at Seventh Hand Farm!
