These Badger Flame beets from @row7seeds are so gorgeous and delicious. We're throwing them on the grill for our #csa potluck today. Bet you wish you were a member. Maybe next year.... #twinkletoesfarm #renton #auburnwa #rainierbeach #algona #enumclaw #eatpnw #eatlocal #femalefarmer #localfoodtastesbetter #yum #eatinseason #mamafarmer #farmher
Giant Dahlia against the smokiest of skies. I don’t know about you, but the smoke is beginning to bring me down. I feel like I do after it rains and rains and I can’t take the kids outside to play much except this is classified as “unhealthy for all groups.” Whatever you believe please start making small changes to improve your impact upon the earth. We rely upon her, we owe it to our children and future generations. Please do something daily to improve your neighborhood, land, city, whatever. Small changes will make a huge difference. Drive less, donate more, pick up a piece of trash, plant your own garden, plant a plant that helps native pollinators, stop spraying bug killers, take a shorter shower, buy locally, put your money into products that are kind to the earth, take your own water bottle to restaurants, take your own to go Tupperware, use less napkins and more cloth...the list is endless. Our options aren’t though, this is the only planet we’ve got. Love your Mother 🌎

Happy Friday Everybody!  Today I was chatting with Bryce about the Farm Stand because it was so hot that we had to pull it in early because the flowers couldn’t hang. When that happens it’s super depressing; it’s a ton of work harvesting, preparing, arranging and taking the whole set up out there. We were talking about how to sell flowers when it’s this hot and we thought that it would be so lovely if our community and friends contacted us when they need arrangements or paper wrapped bouquets for special moments in their lives. This will give us an opportunity to connect more with the lovely people who support us & it’ll also help keep our farm chugging along. If you know someone who needs a special arrangement and is in our area, please help spread the word. It’d mean the whole world to me!  Please DM me for inquires. A weeks notice would be super appreciated. TIA!!! We are so thankful for all of our friends & community.❤️💐👩🏻‍🌾

Here at the monthly Living Well Kent market until 7. It's cool in the shade and there's a nice breeze. #twinkletoesfarm #csa #renton #auburnwa #rainierbeach #algona #twinkletoesfarm #enumclaw #kent #marketfarmer #mamafarmer
You may wonder, why are there less snapdragons at the stand this year? My children LOVE them. They bring me bouquets, make them talk, throw them like confetti, use them as “gas” to fill up the tricycle tank. If you would like some, message me☺️ I’ll make you a special bouquet that includes snapdragons. Next pics! Yummy pizza fresh from the garden!😋 beauty in the gardens 🦋finally, that bouquet from earlier in the week, this is the back☺️ #letthembelittle #creative #create #farmher #michiganflowerfarm #midlandmi #snapdragons #loveflowers #mamafarmer #mompreneur #flowerfarmer #country #garden #gardening #blessed

Had a nice little flower haul this morning with my best bud. 👩🏻‍🌾👧🏻🌸.

It’s kind of wild because I KNOWWWW that we put the work in back in the spring - planting these babies, then weeding around them when they were still tiny, then digging massive trenches around and through them during those crazy rains so that they wouldn’t get flooded, then constantly staring at them as they grew thinking they’d seriously never ever be big enough to pick and come onnnnn days, you’re going so slow...but then, when we harvest these pretty little things so many months later for the restaurant (okay and for our house ... okay and for parting gifts when our fav humans come by for a tour @redwing0906 ... okay and for pretty much any occasion) it still always humbles me - truthfully it seems like magic. As someone who didn’t have farming in their blood, or in their history, or really even in their periphery...I am so grateful to have been able to somehow end up with a life that pretty much revolves around planting things from seeds and watching them grow into something amazing. It might have taken me 30 years or so...but I’m finally fully present and thankful to realize that there’s more to life than a big house filled with stuff. I’ll take our tiny home filled with hand-picked flowers any day. 🙏🏻 “If there’s love in a home | it’s a  p a l a c e  for sure.” ❤️.

Come see us at the @rentonfarmersmarket today! We'll be here until 7.

I hope these bring you joy on this Monday. It has been insanely hot around here. Each day I go outside for a bit, back inside, then back out, the other day I took a selfie of myself after only working outside for forty mins, I was so sweaty it looked like I had sprayed myself with water. I have been reflecting so much about growing flowers. It’s so much work, I think people think that farming flowers is different than farming veggies or anything else because the photos are often prettier, but it’s such hard work. I’m realizing that I can’t compete with large farmers. I don’t have a crew, the infrastructure, the time, so many things. It is requiring a lot of thought. I still haven’t come to any conclusions, but what I do know for right now is that I always have to have flowers in my life. I am not sure to what scale or how this is all supposed to go. But I do know that.

Something is eating divots out of my cauliflower. I suspect birds. Any other thoughts out there?

CSA week 3 in the bag (literally,  I use reusable insulated grocery bags)! I'm feeling pretty good about how this season is going so far. Just have to keep it up. #csa #renton #auburnwa #rainierbeach #algona #twinkletoesfarm #enumclaw #eatpnw #eatlocal #femalefarmer #localfoodtastesbetter #yum #eatinseason #mamafarmer #farmher
I put this twine trellis up yesterday and the beans habe already climbed it a literal foot.

We just got back from Camping for two nights to celebrate our Anniversary. With two tiny ones, I can’t even leave for an hour for a fancy dinner (Emilia is standing firm on her no bottle campaign 😂) so I opted for a family camping trip and I’m so glad I did!  It was so much fun!  We hadn’t been on a vacation since before Waylon was born. It was a blast. We went swimming, made s’mores, ate chili dogs, sat by the campfire and just enjoyed our little familia. We went to Rawlins Lake which is super close to us because Emilia is still disliking the car. She did great, I think because Bryce’s truck is a diesel and is really bumpy. Anyways, what are y’all’s favorite places to camp??? Bonus points if you can swim, it has giant trees & there aren’t neighbor campers right on top of you. 😂

I came back to my scabiosa blooming their beautiful heads off. I received these beautiful starts from my sweet friend @farmhouseflowers.  Have I mentioned that flower friends are some of the most generous folks I’ve ever met?  I love sharing flowers and flower talk. Feeling incredibly grateful and blessed. 👨‍👩‍👧‍👦💐👯‍♀️

I've got some new things for you @rentonfarmersmarket today. Broccoli greens and kohlrabi, in addition to the usual assortment of kale and lettuce. Broccoli greens look and feel like collards with a lovely broccoli flavor. Try some today! #eatpnw #eatlocal #femalefarmer #localfoodtastesbetter #yum #eatinseason #mamafarmer #farmher #eatmoreveggies #trysomethingnew #twinkletoesfarm #csa #renton #auburnwa #rainierbeach #algona #twinkletoesfarm #enumclaw
The lovely @kdtweedsta modeling the #zinnias I cut this morning. This is from one half of one bed(we have 5 full beds total!).

Hi, it’s been a while since I showed my face, so, here I am. I thought I’d share a little about myself since it’s been a while...
I was raised by my Mom, I have a younger sister that is my best adult friend, my other best friends are my children. I grew up in Pacific Grove & Davis; we moved a lot as kids, my Mom just likes moving, so we did. No place ever really felt like home except my grandparents until I moved to Auburn. It truly is my favorite town in the whole world. It has giant oak trees, pine trees, hills, rivers and wild blackberries, oh and the prettiest hawks ever. I’m the biggest old school country music fan you’ll ever meet. I used to play guitar, write songs and sing with my friends pre-babies. I still adore music, but rarely get a chance to hear live music because I’ve got a four month old. I farm flowers with zero mechanical tillage, no herbicides or pesticides and only fertilize with top dressings like aged manure, compost or organic fish emulsion. I farm this way because I’ve got two little humans and my heart is super hippie. I care about the environment oodles and I’m that crazy person that will tell you when you dropped your gum wrapper. 😂. I’m the oldest sibling, but you couldn’t really tell from chatting with me, I’m a creative type which means I am great at most creative things, but if you ask me a question while the tv is on, I literally have a hard time answering. I live for my family, love way too hard and work too hard too. I have tons of energy and believe that homemade tortillas and cookies are bomb.com. I have a rule that I can eat as much as I want when I’m at my grandmas. It’s worked out for me, until I had my second baby. I still have twenty pounds to lose, but I’m working on it. 
What are you working on?  What are your favorite things in life? 🍪🎸💐

The past 65 hours my Husband has been at work and the kiddos and I have been at home.  With all of the fires, Bryce has been doing a lot of mandatory overtime, it’s like this every summer. I’ve gotten pretty used to it, but it never gets easier. Now that Waylon is older, he misses him and gets that he’s gone. There’s no way around it, it sucks. I do my best to be attentive, loving, sweet, fun and all of the things I’d want if I missed a parent. That means that when Bryce isn’t home, we don’t get much farming done. Some days Waylon will go for me “doing dirt” as he likes to say, others it’s a no go and that’s ok.  But that means when Bryce is home we hustle our booties off. It’s funny in this whole social media world things often look just perfect, but life isn’t always that way and that’s just ok by me!  Life is better when we know that some days you should just play piggy back rides, airplanes and tractors and some days you have to bust your booty. It makes everything soooo much better. It feels good to work hard to. My children are little products of everything we teach them. I often hear Waylon saying, “oh, we have to work,” or “oh man, it was a long day,” I love that he already has a beautiful attitude about work and play. Life is all about balance. These salpiglossis reminded me today that we are all doing A-Okay. I hope everyone out there is too. Oh, our farm stand will be open tomorrow too!  From 2pm - Sunset. We are so thankful for everyone who supports us!!! ✨

One glorious stem of hot cocoa. Pre flower farming Summer was my favorite season, now, I still like it, but I think I changed my mind. 😂. Spring is now my thang. Anyone else melt when it’s over 90? Whew!  Summa summa is a killa killa. I’m tired and should stop writing.

I’ve been super honest about my favorite flower (garden roses)... but I want to know what everyone’s favorites are so that I can plan my next year’s crops. So, can you do me the hugest favor and just comment with your favorite flower in the comments below. If you don’t have one, just write the color of flowers you like. I’m such a flower fanatic that I often pick what I grow by what makes me go goo goo gah gah, but I’d like to start growing what everyone loves. So, help a Mama out and comment below. Pretty please. 👇🏻💐👇🏻✨🙏🏻

I was harvesting flowers for our farm stand tomorrow and was overthinking the way I usually do and I was thinking about how my children are getting older with each day that passes & how I have to soak up every moment. In today’s society that is sooooo hard to do. We are pushed in so many ways that are out of our control, but as my Sister once said, I’ve always been kind of a rebel and have always done things my way. And at the end of the day, I really love the life I am creating for my family. You’ll often hear me talking about my family, I grew up in a family where family was everything and I hope to continue to instill those same values in my children. That and that with hard work, anything is possible (even learning how to take better photographs). Haha. 😂Anyone else watch YouTube to learn everything under the sun?!?!?!!

We're not at the @rentonfarmersmarket today because we just got back from a week out of town.

Low calorie and packed with vitamin C.  #nutrientdense #tasty #lowcalorie #vegan #vegetarian #carnivores #cleaneating

Harvested these to take to my daughter's preschool class for snack time today. Should have them for sale next week at the @rentonfarmersmarket so come see me there. #radishes #pinkbeauty #frenchbreakfast #saladturnips #tokyomarket #twinkletoesfarm #csa #renton #auburnwa #rainierbeach #algona #twinkletoesfarm #enumclaw #eatpnw #eatlocal #femalefarmer #localfoodtastesbetter #yum #eatinseason #mamafarmer #farmher #eatmoreveggies #eatlikeyourfarmer
Beautiful morning☀️ I planted the Dahlias and am watering them like you would a newly planted tree. It seems to be working out well. Morning glories are blooming and the poppies are blooming...it’s the neatest thing! Their buds hang down and right before they open they straighten right up. Overnight! The birds were singing along with my sweet girl this morning. It’s going to be a good day. I do have three HUGE beds to weed. So we are filling up the kiddie pool then play/weed time begins!! Have a great Tuesday!

Kale is looking delicious and healthy. The @rentonfarmersmarket starts tonight but we won't be there until 6/19 when you will surely be able to buy some of our lovely kale and hopefully a few other goodies! But don't let that stop you from checking out the farmers market tonight! #renton #auburnwa #rainierbeach #algona #twinkletoesfarm #enumclaw #csa #eatpnw #eatlocal #femalefarmer #localfoodtastesbetter #yum #eatinseason #mamafarmer #farmher #eatinseason #eatmoreveggies

Harvested garlic scapes today and we're turning them into some pesto for homemade pizza. Not enough to sell but just enough to eat.  Maybe next year, dear customers. #eatlikeyourfarmer #eatpnw #eatlocal #femalefarmer #localfoodtastesbetter #yum #eatinseason #mamafarmer #farmher #csa #renton #auburnwa #rainierbeach #algona #twinkletoesfarm #twinkletoesfarm #twinkletoesherself
This Parmesan frittata has quickly become my favorite simple meal. All the ingredients come straight from the backyard except for the Parmesan and butter. Where’s my dairy cow 🐄? 😆😉 It’s so good!

I call this one "baby with freshly transplanted winter squash." We're calling it a success that he only pulled it out once. #farmingwithkids #twinkletoesfarm #csa #renton #auburnwa #rainierbeach #algona #twinkletoesfarm #enumclaw #farmkid #farmbaby #chunknugget #mamafarmer #farmher #femalefarmer #localfoodtastesbetter #familyfarm #queerfamilyfarm
Ok. Anyone figure out yet how to make it so we have more than 24 hours in a day? #busybusy #mamafarmer #organicgardening #frostyhollowfarm #gardening #organic #eatlocal

We have honeybees on the farm now (thanks to @jillyjaye88 ) and they're apparently using the rainwater that's collected on my silage tarps as a watering hole. I'll have to build some be watering stations for them to use for the summer. #honeybees #pollinators #nature #rainwater #silagetarp #twinkletoesfarm #csa #renton #auburnwa #rainierbeach #algona #twinkletoesfarm #eatpnw #eatlocal #femalefarmer #localfoodtastesbetter #yum #eatinseason #mamafarmer #farmher #eatmoreveggies #savethebees #enumclaw

Getting flowers planted while the baby sleeps. Evenings are so luxuriously long right now and it is a pleasure to be out in the field working and listening to thrushes sing in the woods. #oldemoonfarm #flowerfarmer #mamafarmer

First harvest of the season: potato onion scapes. They were a delicious addition to the mayo on the barbecue pork sliders I masse for dinner last night. #eatlikeyourfarmer #eatpnw #eatlocal #femalefarmer #localfoodtastesbetter #yum #eatinseason #mamafarmer #farmher #csa #renton #auburnwa #rainierbeach #algona #twinkletoesfarm #enumclaw #thisiswomenswork
So I didn't plant all the seeds that needed to be planted and I definitely didn't weed out the asparagus bed as planned, but the upside of it all is my house is going to smell like fresh Lilacs tonight. 💜

Planted 3 varieties of sweet potato slips that we got from @sweetbriarfarmwa this morning. I'm excited to see how they do. #sweetpotato #jubilee #willowleaf #dingesspurple #experimentalfarming #trysomethingnew #twinkletoesfarm #csa #renton #auburnwa #rainierbeach #algona #twinkletoesfarm #farmerfriends #mamafarmer #farmher #eatpnw #eatlocal #femalefarmer #localfoodtastesbetter #yum
Less than 2 months to go! Here's what I'm working with on a daily basis, and why I'm so behind on my planting! 🙄💜👶🏵️ #mdfarmer #mdflowerfarmer #mamafarmer #farmingwhilepregnant #33weekspregnant #summerbaby

My storage container is now immediately adjacent to my fields, which just made farming infinitely more efficient. #lean #leanfarming #twinkletoesfarm #csa #renton #auburnwa #rainierbeach #algona #twinkletoesfarm #enumclaw #eatpnw #eatlocal #femalefarmer #localfoodtastesbetter #yum #eatinseason #mamafarmer #farmher
Funny story- @kdtweedsta and I went thru all the dahlias from last season over a month ago and tossed into compost a large number of them bc they were rotten. Today I go to the compost pile bc our dog had once again cornered our resident #groundhog under a pile of branches and was losing her mind. Once out there I what do I see but dahlias coming up! 🙌 Then I start digging....and 45 mins(and an aching back) later I've got a bucket full of viable tubers growing roots and/or sprouts. Woohoo! I'm estimating at least 40 are in here. Good timing since we're in the process of getting all the dahlias in the ground right now. These ladies get a second chance! 🌺💜😊 PS- I actually figured some of them would be good and start growing, and had told Matt to put them in a particular spot near our compost so that I could check on them. Just didn't expect so many! Don't ever discount dahlias, folks!

Happy Sunday from My Little Flowers. 
The past two weeks have been rough, my kids were sick, the Husband went back to work and I didn't have family help for the first time since Emilia was born and I've been trying to plant my booty off. Farming and being a Mama are the two hardest jobs I've ever done. Each requires your full body and soul. Lately I've been questioning why I chose to do them both at the same time. I was naive is the only answer I've come up with. But for as hard as it is, I genuinely love it. Otherwise I wouldn't kick my own ass daily. I've also learned that some days farm work just isn't going to get done. I push hard when I can and let small things go. Because at the end of the day, the one thing I can't suck at is being a Mom. Baby Emilia is the happiest baby and proof that I don't suck at it and my little farm is churning out a whole lot of beauty. I'm doing just fine and I hope you are too. #dontworrybehappy #mamafarmer #happysunday #farmher #farmingwithatwomonthold
