:: Planting for the Future | Wildflowers ::

This morning, thanks to the help of the Illinois Fish & Wildlife team we hand planted over 45 species of wildflowers and grasses on nearly 2 acres of our farm.

I can't even begin to explain my excitement and anticipation to transform this into a field of beautiful wild flowers for my bees and other pollinators!
Here's just a sample of what we planted! (all flower images by Prairie Moon Nursery)

The seed was mixed with sawdust and oats to help mark where the seed had been spread. The team did an amazing job of sectioning it off to ensure the seeds were distributed evenly.
Thank you, thank you to each of you for the fun experience this morning!
See you all in 2-3 years for a photo in the flowers! ;)
