Farm Store Greenhouse
This greenhouse isn't your typical greenhouse.
95 % of the plants bear fruit or flowers that can be eaten or of benefit to bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds. The other 5 % are plants that Lorissa thinks are unique such as hens and chicks.
The greenhouse is also tiny. Lorissa loves variety so there are lots of different types of mint, tomatoes, and other plants. There is lots of variety, however there aren't huge quantities.
The other unique feature is Lorissa starts everything from seed or propagation. Everything is started and cared for by Lorissa.
Penner Pumpkins Farm Store
Lorissa, the owner of Penner Pumpkins, decided to give her blog the very unique name Pumpkinist Lora. Lorissa posts recipes, information on plants, growing information, updates on the garden and patch, and pictures.
