Zoning board OK's U-pick flower farm with historic barn turned wedding venue - The Star Press
This is a very unique property that needs to be shared with all of Delaware County," Christopher and Katherine Straley said in their variance application for The Barn at Cottonwood. " … we are excited to share our home and property with couples on the biggest day of their lives."The Straleys' secluded property on the far east side of the county includes a residence, an Amish-built barn, a three-stall English-style carriage house and a beautifully decorated, 19th-century guest log cabin rescued from London, Ky.The Conways also want to share their real estate with the public."Our plan is to encourage the public to spend time on our farm, where they can venture into the rows of flowers, pick the flowers of their choice, and build their own bouquets," the couple said in their variance petition. "They can spend time browsing in the barn, admiring the horses and enjoying the country atmosphere while we put together their flower arrangements."In their barn's hayloft, the Conways discovered notched-out logs that they believed were part of a cabin that once occupied the site. The date 1863 was scratched on a post in the barn. The family resides in a house built on site in 1872.After the coronavirus pandemic interrupted son Garret's internship opportunities via Indiana University, he and his father turned their attention to agritourism — tilling a horse pasture on which they sowed flower seeds after researching U-pick flower farms.But farming is not a full-time job for the Conways. Vick is a superintendent at a Richmond manufacturing plant and Christa is a work-at-home graphic designer and social media promoter.Christa is hearing from people that, because of the coronavirus pandemic, they want a peaceful, back-to-nature venue they can go to and not feel like they're putting their health at risk.In addition to flowers, the family produces honey for sale from their own bee hives. The farm's atmosphere also includes cats in the barn, dachshunds in the flower field, twinkle lights in the barn and flower field, and from time to time a food truck and live music.RELATED COVERAGE:?

A Garden Designed to Run Wild - The New York Times
Nathaniel Lloyd, combined with a 16th-century yeoman’s hall; Lutyens also laid out a six-acre garden. In 1954, Lloyd’s son Christopher, who had always loved working in the property’s garden with his mother, Daisy Lloyd, and who had recently been working as a lecturer in horticulture in Kent, returned to the family home to open a plant nursery on the grounds, which are now preserved by a trust. Working from Great Dixter until his death in 2006, Christopher became one of Britain’s most pre-eminent gardeners and garden writers — he completed 25 books and had a longstanding weekly column in Country Life magazine. He was known for his willingness to deviate from tradition, once telling the horticultural writer Rosemary Verey, “a garden is a garden [and] whether it looks English or not, I wouldn’t care.”A view through the meadow to the farm cottage Kent shares with her husband and three young sons.Credit...David FernandezA timeworn fence, left by one of the property’s previous occupants, marks the entrance to the meadow.Credit...David FernandezGreenery encroaches on the garden steps, in the cracks of which daisies and other meadow plants have sprouted.Credit...David FernandezUpon moving into the cottage, the couple received this flowering geranium as a gift from a family friend.Credit...David Fernandez“Upon entering the property, you see stately York sandstone flags and an ancient gate,” says Kent. But then these elements give way to something wilder: In tension with the considered architecture of Lutyens’s gardens, done in an Arts and Crafts style consisting of a series of distinct “rooms,” Lloyd’s plantings are profuse, bold and joyfully informal — as he put it, there are “shrubs, climbers, hardy and tender perennials, annuals and biennials, all growing together and contributing to the overall tapestry.” He, along with his mother, until her death in 1972, also tended to the property’s various swaths of dedicated meadowland, from which, come the warmer months, wildflowers, including orchids, yellow rattle and buttercups, emerge at random. “Many traditional gardeners find it outrageous,” says Kent. (This is, after all, the same country where she once witnessed a neighbor trim the edges of a flower bed with a pair of nail scissors.) “But I think it’s magical.”div data-tes... Aug 3, 2020

How an Urban Flower Farmer Spends Her Sundays - The New York Times
I think it definitely takes a certain type of person to volunteer their yard and put their trust in strangers.”Ms. Clum lives with her husband, Christopher Longworth, 51, who is an architectural metal fabricator; their daughter Cora, 15; a dog, Ida Mae; and three cats.BREAKFAST WITH IDA MAE I get up early, around 6 a.m. If I was a real farmer I would probably have to get up even earlier. I have one cup of French-press coffee, and I will make myself a hearty breakfast, because I will be outside for several hours. There are almost always eggs, maybe some sautéed greens. On Sundays everyone in the house sleeps in, and it’s really quiet and lovely. My dog will get up. though, and if she’s staring at me, I will have to give her a walk before I leave. She almost always wins.WEEDING AND WATERING I try to visit two yards one day, three yards the next day. Now that it’s July, most everything is planted. When I go to the yards, I am mostly weeding and watering and cutting. I do what they call succession planting, which means planting seeds so there is always something blooming. That way I will have flowers throughout the season. I currently have black-eyed Susans, zinnias, cosmos, snapdragons, and chocolate lace flowers blooming.Harvesting black-eyed Susans in a backyard in Brooklyn.Credit...Aundre Larrow for The New York TimesSOCIAL DISTANCING I spend from two to four hours in each yard. During the pandemic when everyone was at home, I saw people more often than I did previously. Sometimes they would stay behind their door, and I would talk to them. Sometimes they would come out and maintain a distance. People are lonely and craving human interaction.Ms. Clum sells her flowers through a subscription service and to two stores.Credit...Aundre Larrow for The New York TimesBEAT THE HEAT On Sundays I’m usually able to get to two houses before the heat of the day comes. You don’t want to cut flowers... Jan 4, 2020
