Little Farmhouse Wedding Proposals

Little Farmhouse Wedding Proposals

One of the things that tripped me up a bit in the beginning was putting together my first wedding proposal document. Still, I have no real idea what others are putting out there into the world. I feel little vulnerable in sharing this, but I'm doing it because I had no where to look. Hopefully this can help someone else. 

Easy Temporary Windbreak

Got wind? We sure do. I find myself cringing a lot during the spring and fall when strong winds from the south blast through the farm. Last summer, we netted plants and put as many as we could under low tunnels to offer them some protection. We'll do the same this summer, but we're also installing a temporary windbreak fence to make things a little safer for the plants. Read on for our plan and shopping links. Thank you to Aztec Dahlias for this idea!
