Garden Ramblings by Linda Swanson, Head Gardener

by Linda Swanson, Head Gardener

Even though it’s FREEZING outside and there is fresh snow on the ground, our thoughts are on colorful flowers and the sweet smell of soil…  Yes, Spring will be here before you know it, so we want to be ready! Where can you work outdoors in a more beautiful setting than the Wolfe’s Neck Farm?  The smell of green pastures mixed with ocean breezes, animals all around, beautiful barns, a classic old farmhouse, and surrounded by lots of friends.  You just can’t beat it!!!  The following list will remind you of all that we do here at the Farm to keep it looking so beautiful and so well-cared-for.
