October on a Dahlia Farm

How does October make you feel? For me it makes me happy because I know some of our dahlias will start to flower soon. It's exciting seeing what new flowers we will get. But it is also our busiest time of the year! This time of the year everything seems to start growing and exciting things are all around. Our resident wild turkey has had 11 chicks with 3 of them having an unusual white colouring. Our chooks are back to their old tricks of hiding their eggs and pretending to nest, even though we ...

Milly Chats with the Bumblebees

Hi!  It’s me again, Milly! In my last blog, I talked about my life as a homeschooled kid. Now, in this one, I am going to talk about our Pick Your Owns days at our Green Footed Kiwi dahlia farm. When my sisters and I set up our dahlia farm in Kaikohe, NZ, it was really important to us to share our love of dahlias with others. At the time Covid was all around and everyone looked sad, so we thought it would be a good way to cheer people up. If you read my last blog post, you will remember I...

Slugs are really bad for our garden because they eat our dahlias and leave their slug slime all over the place. If the plant is too small, they will eat so much it will die. We need to get rid of them before we plant our dahlias!...

Gracie Grows Great Dahlia Seeds

Hi! My name is Gracie-Mae and I’m here to talk to you about dahlia seeds and how special they are to me. Watching a little bud crack open into life without knowing what is inside is so exciting. It could be something amazing no one else has ever seen before, or it could be a yellow single, ugly as. I’m not sure if the waiting part is good or bad, but if you grow enough seeds, the wait will always be worth it in the end!...

Milly's Homeschool Thoughts

Hi! My name is Milly and I am here to tell you all about my life as a home schooled kid. Lots of people think home schoolers are creepy or weird. Maybe that is true, or maybe my weird is just different from your weird. Either way, I’m fine with being called weird. After all, it is really just being different and I like having the opportunity to live life differently....
