Florist - Heck No!
People are asking if I am growing all these flowers because I like flowers. Flowers are nice too look at, but I am growing these bulbs, plants, rhizomes, etc to sell the bulbs or rhizomes. Flowers are a by product. The person who is letting me use her farm appreciates the flowers so I will leave a bouquet on her outdoor kitchen table by her house. I actually need to remove the flowers because I don't want the plant wasting energy on seeds, but instead need the plant to fatten up the bulb, tuber, or rhizome. Here is a picture of the arrangement that I left on her table. I didn't put any effort into nor am I good an arranging flowers. I just stuck them in the vase and left them there. She has a covered outdoor kitchen. There is a fireplace in one corner, and grill and a stove for baking during the summer to avoid heating up the kitchen.
