South Jersey Iris farm

Hello everyone! The Teddy Bear Diary staff recently visited the home of South Jersey Iris to look at the beautiful flowers and hopefully score some lunch. South Jersey Iris grows more than 1200 varieites of tall, bearded iris. That's way more fingers than I have so we will have to take their word for it.

It's so beautiful! Iris are edible, right?

I get the strangest feeling that I am being watched.

Well, we have had a very exciting day looking at all these tall flower things and learning about how to grow them. Apparently, you stick them in the dirt. Wow! Who would have thought of that! As it turns out, however, they are not as edible as we hoped so we are going stop at a squash farm on the way home. The gang can't wait to start squashing things for themselves! We'll make the farmers proud of us!

Many thanks to our host South Jersey Iris. We’ll pay for that broken stuff, honest.
