It's marigold season! These photos show our marigolds in the greenhouse & out in the San Luis Obispo fields. We germinate seed, grow the plugs, & transplant them into the farmer's fields. The farmer grows the plants to maturity, then the crop is harvested for seed. That becomes commercial seed for nurseries to produce flowers for garden centers & other nurseries, or it's sold in packets for home gardeners.

  • Our local farmers and food industry in SLO County need your business now more than ever! Thanks to Alex Wolfe and his dad Michael at the Avocado Shack in @morrobayca for a great load of local produce. Like all of our farmers markets and farm stands, they have put in extra safeguards to keep us all safe during the pandemic. #stillfarming
  • Farmers may have the most diversified skillset on the planet. From agronomist to mechanic and fabricator, a “Day in the Life of SLO County Agriculture” never looks the same! Garrett and Natasha Twisselman of Crazy TJ Farms in Carrisa Plains, California planted their first crop of dryland barley this year with the help of their daughter Quinn. #nationalagweek #stillfarming
