Yes -- You Can Cut Your Own
by Bobby Blair 10/11/12
A once a year happening this Saturday, October 13th (revised to TODAY, Friday, October 12th) at the Mayor's Plantation on Highland Street ...
People mean well, but when left to their own devices things can often go amok. When folks ask if the can cut their own dahlias at my Plantation on Highland Street, the answer is always a resounding NO. Most people don't realize that the next flower to bloom is often on the stem they just cut. Oh, I didn't know is their usual response.
With an impending frost predicted for Saturday night the 13th, this writer and farmer will throw caution to the wind by inviting the public to cut their own dahlias during daylight hours from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. This is a one day event ONLY. Flower lovers are asked to bring their own scissors, bucket or vases, and water.
The field is full with over 3,500 plants and hundreds of thousands of flowers. Large Dinner Plate Dahlias are $1.00, medium size 50 cents and small 25 cents. Gates open at 260 Highland Street a half mile beyond Highland Farm on your right at 9 a.m. on Saturday the 13th.
Due to MSNBC's predicted frost for tonight - the gates and prices above will be effective TODAY- gates open at 9:30 a.m. Friday October 12th.
