COVID-19 and Our Farm

It has been a wild ride trying to navigate the world amidst a global pandemic. We would usually be popping up all around Chattanooga in our flower truck, the Blumenwagen. Instead all pop-ups are cancelled until further notice. We are trying to do our part with social distancing but also as a small farm, we are trying to survive. Thankfully to some creative brainstorming and from suggestions from our Chattanooga community, we have come up with a couple of different ways to responsibly keep supplying…

Valentine’s Day Hoorah

This year we are having our first flower pop-up a month early beginning on February 13th. We are kicking off our 2020 flower season at the same location we began and ended our season last year: The Mad Priest! We will be bringing our beautiful anemones and local greenery as well as ranunculus, tulips, waxflower, stock, and more flowers ethically sourced from US farms. On February 14th, we will be beginning our day at Bluegrass Grill (8:30AM-12:30PM) and from 1:00-5:00PM we will be set up…

“Blumen Hemp” our new CBD Products right here in Chattanooga

We are proud to now offer our hemp to our customers! Grown right here on our farm, processed, and then packaged, we are one of the few farms that can offer high quality CBD products that are this fresh and really entail what it means to be “local”. Just like with our flowers, we grow our hemp organically. This year, for the 2019-2020 season, we grew the strains Cherry Wine and BaOx. To ensure quality, we tested our product several times through our local hemp…

Jette, Vesper, & Rowan

August. This summer has been crazy. This year was the first year selling flowers to the general public here in Chattanooga. Previously, we have just sold to florists for the last two years. This is also the first year the Blumenwagen has been on the road. The summer has absolutely flown by. It’s been hard learning to balance the work – being a mom – and life. So much love going out to all the working moms and dads! I suffer from mom-guilt or farm-guilt…

Nightfall Concert Series

A couple of weeks ago we had the pleasure of popping up for our first time at Nightfall’s Art Market! It is held at Miller Park right next to Miller Plaza on 850 Market Street in Chattanooga. Nightfall is a super fun event with FREE live music almost every Friday and many great vendors. It is one of my favorite downtown events! The Blumenwagen will be popped up selling flowers so come and say hi to us! Or to see Sake (: Here are some…

Our Mini Farmers

I wanted to take a second to talk about our “mini” farmers here at Joli Jardin. Each of them help in their own special way and we love encouraging our children to be outdoors and to appreciate nature. Currently we are homeschooling our kids, so a majority of our school days are actually spent outside! Meet Jette Monroe: Age 6, Favorite color: pink Favorite flower: celosia (brainflower!) Favorite place to travel: Mexico Meet Vesper Lily, Age: 18 months, Favorite show: Darkwing Duck Favorite word: daggle…

Early Spring Flowers

This post is to run down the flowers we are able to offer at the beginning of the season. Because of our hoop-house, we are able to have blooms as early as February, and sometimes as early as January! Our first blooms to blossom are narcissus (daffodils), hellebores (lenton roses), tulips, anemones, and ranunculus. We have began our flower season by having delivery days to downtown Chattanooga and on Signal Mountain. Pictures below are what is offered.
