A Visit to Jello Mold Farm in Summer

Harvesting sunflowers in the morning before it gets too hot

Zinnias, Jello Mold Farm

Jello Mold Farm is a busy place in mid-summer.  The sun was already bright when we arrived at 9:00 a.m.  It’s best to pick flowers early in the day before it gets too hot.  We stayed out of the way of the workers as we walked the flower beds looking for photo opportunities.

    I really enjoyed this post. I work on an organic vegetable farm, but I really would love working on a flower farm.

    I can’t remember ever seeing dalias growing – they’re such a lovely flower.

    “Jello Mold Farm” – what an intriguing name. Every time I see it, I giggle, remembering those 1950’s molded jello “salads” that everyone adored. They were easy for kids to make, though!

  4. Hire me please. Hahahaha. Just loved it.
