Fields of Flowers

Lola in the Nasturtium Field

Did you know that my formal name is Compo de Fiori?  Fields of Flowers in Italian.  And that's what we have here at Deep Acres Farms.  Fields of Flowers.

Last March we ordered tiny paks of Mexican Sage, Japanese Anenomes, and Flowering Tabacco from a seller on ebay.  Later we planted Nasturtium seeds.   The Mexican Sage is now 5 feet tall and in just coming in flower.  They are late bloomers and grown as annuals in cold climates like ours in Iowa.   We took some cuttings which are already rooting and we hope to take them through the winter indoors.
