The poppy field in Mantua is in bloom - Cache Valley Daily

Someone said the flowers should still be in bloom until the end of the month. Lifelong Mantua resident Terry Nelson, a retired seminary teacher, was out hoeing the garden next to his grandfather’s house that he lives in. He said the house was built in 1873. If anyone knew the origin of the poppies, a longtime resident of Mantua should. “The story I’ve been told about the poppies goes back to one of the early settlers of Mantua,” Nelson explains. “Danish immigrant Hans Rasmussen’s wife brought some seeds from Denmark and planted them.” Kellie Funk of Pleasant View photographs her two daughters Savannah and Kennedy on Monday afternoon in the poppy fields of Mantua. Nelson says there was a barn and a house on the hill above the patch. He thought Rasmussen owned the ground area where the Box Elder Campground is and donated it to the Forest Service. “The poppies have always been there, but people have just started to come to see them,” Nelson says. “They must be a pretty hardy plant as easy as they grow. The don’t get watered or cared for and they grow anyway.” The poppies are starting to become as popular as Mantua Reservoir, which is just across the street from the Nelson’s. “They’ve become a tourist attraction,” Nelson says. “We get a lot of people driving through town to find them.” Kellie Funk of Pleasant View watches as her daughter Savannah takes a turn behind the camera at the poppy field in Mantua on Monday. Red poppy fields were inspiring back in WWI history. A Canadian physician, Lieutenant-Colonel John McCrae wrote the poem “In Flanders Fields.” This poem describes a battlefield where red poppies grew and was the resting place of soldiers that died there. He wrote it in tribute to a fallen soldier and friend, Lieutenant Alexis Helmer, after presiding over the funeral. It became one of the more popular poems of the World War I era. The poppies are colorful; going to the fields are great for someone looking for a summer adventure with children. There are plenty of trails that go through the flowers and lots of room to take pictures, though parking may be limited at times. ...

Coronavirus hit California's cut-flower industry at the worst time - Los Angeles Times

Eufloria reopened two days later. Advertisement “We are starting to bring some of that employment back,” sales manager Chad Nelson said. “We want to make sure that we’re doing things to keep [plants] producing the way that they should, and if and when this market does come back, then figure out how we can handle those orders.” Coastal farms from San Diego County through Humboldt County likewise laid off most of their workers and went into dormancy at the very time when they usually earn the bulk of revenue — the string of holidays from Valentine’s Day through Mother’s Day. Chain groceries were among the first to cancel orders, said F.J. Trzuskowski, vice president of sales for Washington-based Continental Floral Greens, which grows the “supporting cast” green foliage for bouquets on three California farms. Advertisement “There was no forewarning of this. It was like, ‘Hey, stop all shipments starting now,’” Trzuskowski said. “Then with social distancing, all of a sudden the wholesaler can’t be open to the public. It was a very quick stop to the industry.”Mellano said he also was hit hard by cancellations of events such as conferences, particularly in Las Vegas. Weddings were put off, along with their roses, said Eufloria’s Nelson.“Maybe they didn’t happen right now, but they’re going to happen, right?” he said. “We just don’t know what size they’re going to be when they do happen. Budgets are going to be different.” Advertisement The California Cut Flower Commission has told its members that floriculture is protected under the agricultural exemption to closure orders. But with the collapse of the distribution pipeline, the clarification amounts to a technicality. Los Angeles’ historic flower market, like others around the nation, is a ghost town. “We’ve got wholesale companies closing down and retail stores, which in some cases have business, are losing their normal lines of distribution,” CEO Pruitt said. “We’re in the process of trying to put that back together.”Pruitt said it’s hard to predict how many farms will fail and which ones will have enough funds left to reboot once demand increases. Growers could switch crops or hedge their bets, as some of the financially strapped greenhouse operations did by leasing space for cannabis cultivation when that crop was added to the California agricultural portfolio in 2016.Cut flowers are a $1.3-billion industry nationwide, though most of that revenue comes from the sale of imported flowers, predominantly from Colombia, according to the UC Davis Agricultural Issues Center. Domestic growers account for about 27% of national sales, down from 37% roughly a decade ago. California-grown flowers account for three-quarters of the national domestic sales, according to the UC Davis researchers. Advertisement Trade deals that favored Andean nations in South America as part of the war on drugs are largely responsible for the decline of California’s flower industry. While Colombia and Ecuador dominate the market for bouquet mainstays such as carnations, chrysanthemums, gerbera and roses, California growers shifted to species that can’t be grown in the cool upland valleys of the Andes.Longtime California growers switched to Continental’s specialty — the “supporting cast” of greenery in traditional bouquets including ferns, eucalyptus and Israeli ruscus, a...

Master Gardeners of Shelby County announce 2020 gardening series -

Freisthler will discuss companion planting, the art of grouping plants that optimize the health of each other. Master Gardener Janet Nelson has been growing and using herbs for years. On June 16 she will share information on which herbs do best in the region, when and how to plant various herbs, what to do with them afterwards and how to preserve them. Starting with herbs that everyone recognizes, Nelson will introduce attendees to some of the lesser known herbs. Best of all, Nelson always brings in samples of her favorite recipes. On Aug. 18 Master Gardeners Russ Stewart and Ann Heeley will showcase the toughest of the tough: plants that defy gardeners to kill them. Included are annuals, perennials, shrubs and houseplants. These are the plants that thrive on neglect and are easy to grow. On Sept. 15 Master Gardener Mark Hipple will show how compost is the greatest gift that can be given to a garden. Creating compost at home, even with limited space, is easier than people think. Compost nourishes the soil as it breaks up clay, helps prevent disease, fertilizes plants and is totally organic. Hipple will discuss a variety of methods to make compost, when to apply it and how to accelerate the process of making “black gold.” On Oct. 20 Master Gardener and Botanical Researcher Katrina Smith will discuss the differences between bulbs (like tulips), corms (like crocuses) and tubers (like sweet potatoes). She’ll also throw in a few rhizomes for good measure. Examples will include those grown in this area plus some favorites from other countries. Load comments ...
