Happy chill in the air! Time for a fall project or two? Sunfall now carries Kipp's hand dyed wool and wool roving. Kipp has been selling here for close to 3 years now. Before that she had a shop in the Washington D.C. area and she also traveled to many shows. Choose individual pieces or kits. Her ready made aprons, purses, pins and towels make great gifts too. I love her bright colors and attention to detail. If you'd like some information on upcoming classes just send us a message and we'll get you on our update list.
It truly feels like spring now with these rains and humidity. Our plants are thriving as we start to move them outdoors and harden them off. I've also just started some more zucchini seeds in my favorite paper pots. More potmakers also just arrived if you would like to start your own seeds. The potmaker eliminates transplant shock by using newpaper strips to make your starter pot. Come on in and I'll give you a demo.
I was so pleased to receive a letter today informing me that my building is now on the National and State Register of Historic Places. My building was originally the State Bank of Lodi which closed during the depression era. The Michel's family took possession and it was a family paint and plumbing business for 71 years.
I am the third owner and I truly appreciate these great old buildings, flaws and all. I continue to improve what I can to maintain its original character. More information about the new Lodi Downtown Historic District can be obtained here.
After what seems like four long months without sun, we finally have some! Everyone is ecstatic, I am sure. Sunday we are spring cleaning our shed and starting some special clearances. We also have some fun new items in and garden seeds, which are the best part of spring renewal.
Had to take a short excursion so we will be closed Wednesday, Feb 12th. If you are wanting garden seeds we will be open on Thursday and we have some nice valentine gifts also. Hope to see you soon.
Season Greetings to all. Wishing you a joyous season. We hope to see you and also hope you support our local artists by purchasing some of their very unique and beautiful creations.
Three Lodi ladies handcraft Christmas ornaments for us.
Art glass and art jewelry are sure to please with splashes of color all year. Hope to see you soon!
we will be closed Wednesday & Thursday this week. Reopen August 23rd. See you soon.
Time to remember all who have given service to their country and also to be thankful blessings large and small.
Sunfall will be open Sunday 11 until 3 ish. We have peppers hot and sweet, early reds like Wisconsin Lakes and Chervena Chuska, also Feher Ozon, a nice sweet that can be made into paprika.
The Paul Robeson tomato plants are looking outstanding and we still have Hillbilly, Crnkovic and Mamie Brown's on hand. Also Beams Yellow Pear is a nice small sweet yellow pear that just came out of our greenhouse.
Have a wonderful week-end!
Last Monday felt pretty good, then wet and rainy all week. This Monday also is looking great and its finally feeling like spring to me. Daffs are poking through many yards now and the birds are very busy building nests. The greenhouse is looking good and full of so many tomatoes, I am starting to smell and taste them. This seedling is Dester, which was THE best tasting tomato in my garden last year. However, I'm growing some of my favs from years past too.
Did you know that Discover Wisconsin has been in Lodi over the past year filming? Well they've finished editing and you can be the first to view it. Tonight in Lodi. See you there!
