Moss Greenhouses Inc.

We had the exquisite opportunity to visit Moss Greenhouses the other weekend and take a peak at all that goes on behind the scenes of their flower shop.  At first glance their shop looks charming and quaint, but as you walk farther inside you realize it is filled to the brim with a plethora of flowers, plants, vegetable starts, fruit starts, herbs, as well as darling fairy garden accessories, local art work, garden decor and so much more! 

If you are a busy mom with little ones you need to stop by!  There is a darling sandbox for the kids to play in and even a chair to rest your weary feet.  The staff is delightful and  you will be thinking of reasons to return as soon as you leave.
Moss Greenhouses Inc. looks like a ma and pa garden shop from the outside, but once you walk into the back and look inside just one of dozens of their greenhouses you realize this is quite the enormous production.  The only words that came to mind as I walked into their large greenhouses were, "flowers for days".
 The rows of bright red Geraniums hanging above the rows of golden Marigolds was a spectacular sight!
 They have a plethora of purple, pink and every color pastel pansy you can think of!
 Their fairy gardens are so cute, they'll make you wish you could shrink yourself down to have tea and honey with the fairies or roast some s'mores with the gnomes. 
 Greens, blues, purples, reds, pinks, yellows, oranges, whites...just think of a color and they have it!
 Is that a quilt or a blanket of flowers? ;)
 Have I used the words beautiful, stunning, breathtaking and lovely to describe these images yet?
 Thank you so much for letting us take a look at your beautiful business.  You truly are making the world a more beautiful place one flower pot at a time!

Sneak Peak

As we are busily preparing for the Market to open for it's 5th year... (wow, how time flies when you're working hard and having fun)...our vendors are just as busy getting ready for this coming season.

 We were given special permission to take some "behind the scenes" pictures of Moss Greenhouses' massive floral and plant production and were in absolute awe by what we saw.  Below are just a few pictures.  Monday we will have a full post with dozens of "behind the scenes" pictures of Moss Greenhouses Inc., one of our many wonderful vendors that you can find at the Jerome Farmers Market this Summer/Fall 2016.

The fields are resting and preparing for another season!

We have put the fields to rest and reflected on this past season.
We had a wonderful market last year!  We'd like to thank all of our wonderful customers, vendors and sponsors.  The Market is definitely our happy place, and we are so grateful to all of you who have made that possible. 

We'd like to especially thank Hilex Poly, Jerome Shoe and Tack, Arlenes Flowers, Sportsmans Warehouse, D & B Supply, Valley Country Store, our neighbors at the Twin Falls Chamber of Commerce AND last but not least our fabulous and incredibly kind and generous sponsors. So many people come together to make this market the success it is. We are so grateful for you all. 

We would be remiss if we didn't thank Libby, Michelle and Bradon Ricketts, Emma Swenson, and Kellee Traughber for their continued and consistent help at the market booths.  Ana, Phil, Phillip, Jackson, Clara and little baby (due soon) Gerstner.  It’s difficult to have a young family and spend your Saturday mornings standing outside for 4 hours, but we are so glad they do. We'd also like to thank David, Hilary and Theo Bartholomew, who were extra hands that consistently helped. John and Nina Hollifield, of the Mountain View Barn are wonderful people to work with. Their kindness knows no bounds. The set-up and take-down of the market every Saturday takes many hands and we couldn't have done it without all of their help.
  
Counting our many blessings is an absolute wonderful way to start the year.

We wish you all a Happy New Year!


"Happy people are not thankful, thankful people are happy."
