Have you ever dreamed of starting your own gardening or farming business? It can sound romantic and whimsical, can’t it? But what's really involved in running a seasonal business around growing things? How do you manage the season or even your day around harvesting and delivering plant material? This week, I share an episode I actually recorded for some of my students. You see, I have a secret podcast called Seedy Conversations® where I give the back story on businesses, homesteaders and bloggers.  We dive into what makes them tick. Well, this episode is from those archives. I interviewed Erin Benzakein who has been on the Living Homegrown Podcast before (Episode #95). But this time, Erin pulls back the curtain and gives a snapshot of what life is like as a small organic farmer in the state of Washington. Erin is the top floral farmer-florist in the country and she spills the beans on what it really means to run a small family farm. And the good news is that Erin finds her business to be rewarding and inspiring each and every day. I think you will love her story!  You'll learn: About a typical day in the life of a farmer-florist What is the best gear to wear in the field Which crops to grow for market The magical time for taking garden photos The 1 morning practice that sets you up for success in your day Top advice for anyone considering becoming a farmer You can get more information about Erin, her farm and all the links mentioned in this episode in the show notes at www.LivingHomegrown.com/119 as well as a full transcript of the show.
