My wonderful Dad and Stepmom gave us some trees for the farm today. The little oak has been growing in a pot planted by a squirrel 3 years ago. The little redbuds are volunteers that have came up in his yard. Can’t wait to watch them grow ❤️

Professional Development is so much better when you are with friends! We had so much fun touring the local farms today. Can't wait to learn more about incorporating Ag in the Classroom tomorrow.

The CORN MAZE was cut on Saturday! Our professional maze cutter, Rob, put the maze coordinates in his GPS system attached to the mower. He then mowed the paths. Right now the corn is about 4 feet tall. #KellersFarmstand #cornmaze #familyfarm #illinoisfarm #illinoisfarmers #illinoisfarming #oswego #oswegoil #oswegoillinois #cuttingcornmaze

Do you ever google something that you think is really dumb but then you see a ton of other people googled it too?? Pretty sure that’s basically how life works. .
.

You’re out there feeling like you’re the only person that could possibly feel those things or think those thoughts. But really, there’s tons of people asking themselves that question or wrestling with those feelings. Whether it’s in business, wedding planning, relationships, or just life. .
.

We’ve all got our things but damn we are more the same than different. We all want to feel like someone else understands or just gets it. So ask away friends, share with someone, find a community you’re comfortable with! I guarantee you aren’t alone.
.
.

And next time you need to google “will I kill this plant if...”, “what to do if my dog ate a whole raccoon” or “non traditional wedding vows?” I promise you aren’t the first!! 😘

Hey friends, I’m copping out of #fridayintroductions today. 😂 You get plenty of me on a daily basis! Instead, I’ll introduce you to @willrettnaturalfarm !! If you’re new around here you might not know that @willrettflowerco is actually a farm ON a farm. .
.

My fiancé Jake grows certified organic corn, soybeans, oats, and wheat! The flower farm is just a little piece of one of their fields that rotates between those crops! .
.

Needless to say Jake has got a lot going on. Farming on that scale (or any scale) is hectic, time consuming, and stressful at times. When he’s not farming, he’s (flower) farming. He does all my tractor work and has held way more bouquets than he ever intended to. .
.

Don’t be surprised if you see some of his wheat popping up in market bouquets this summer. 🌾😏

🎃Greta, Megan, Elin, Gretchen, Megan, Jason, and Teresia (who took photo) were weeding the pumpkin patch recently. They were focusing on the areas close to the pumpkin plant that our machine couldn’t reach well. This is hard work! #KellersFarmstand #pumpkinpatch #illinoisfarm #illinoisfarming #pumpkinfarming #illinoisfarmers #oswego #oswegoil #oswegoillinois #weedingpumpkins #thisisntfun #hardwork #familyfarm

Spent the day prepping for our most colorful wedding of the season so far!! I love getting to know my brides (and grooms!) and showing their personalities through flowers. .
.

The ranunculus are almost done for the year but they are really going out with a bang!! I can’t wait to share pics of this weeks designs and the couple who inspired them. .

Double the tractors, double the action! Marty & Nik were weeding the pepper plants with the first tractor shown. Frank was driving the second tractor with an attachment to work up the soil. He was getting it ready for planting cucumbers and zucchini. #KellersFarmstand #tractoraction #familyfarm #illinoisfarm #illinoisfarmers #illinoisfarming #ilfarmfamilies #oswego #oswegoil #oswegoillinois

Normally I don’t feed the hens in the morning, but I gave them a little snack this morning while feeding the bull calf for the market.

Do any of you get stuck in the grind of plant, weed, harvest, repeat?? It always seems like there are too many weeds, not enough flowers, and something (or a lot of things) that didn’t go as planned?🙋🏼‍♀️ Me almost every day! .
.
.

But every once in awhile I step back and realize holy sh*t I grew this. 😂 It’s like the first bucket I ever harvested all over again. This thought doesn’t cross my mind nearly as much as it should... .
.
.
So from now on I’m trying to adopt a few new mantras: abundance instead of scarcity, done over perfect, and last but not least you become what you believe (thanks @oprah ) .

The corn in our corn maze field is about 2 feet tall now! This is field corn not sweet corn. We can’t call it a corn maze yet since the maze hasn’t been cut. Give it a couple of weeks and our professional maze cutter will be busy! #KellersFarmstand #cornmaze #oswego #oswegoil #oswegoillinois #illinoisfarm #illinoisfarmers #illinoisfarming #ilfarmfamilies #corn

Marty gets a really good shoulder workout while operating this machine! He is moving the two spinning parts around the pepper plants. Metal rods are attached which destroy weeds. Nik’s driving while keeping a close eye on the path ahead and behind the tractor. #KellersFarmstand #familyfarm #weeding #oswego #oswegoil #oswegoillinois #illinoisfarm #illinoisfarmers

This is a super accurate representation of how I’m feeling on this Monday morning. Wedding season is off to the BEST start. This past weekend just completely filled my cup. Two gorgeous weddings. Two sweet couples. And Jake finished planting corn AND soybeans! 🍾 all is well. 😌
.
.

This week I’m playing catch up on the farm. I’ve got thousands of little babies that need planted! Who wants to come over and help?! Lots of La Croix + terrible tan lines provided 😂. .
.

Happy Monday friends!!!

🔥Do you enjoy self-inflicted pain?🔥 If so, we have the perfect hot pepper plants for you! Some are labeled as “ungodly hot” or “insanely hot.” We’ve also added where they land on the scoville rating. Like sweet peppers? We’ve got those, too. Our Naperville Farmstand is open Sat & Sun 9-5, M-F 9-6. Oswego Farmstand will reopen once we have sweet corn in July! #KellersFarmstand #hotpeppers #familyfarm #naperville #napervilleil #napervilleillinois #greenhouse #hotterthanhell #illinoisfarm #illinoisfarmers #illinoisfarming

Meet Marty, our younger brother. Marty likes dirt and dirt likes Marty. The first photo is what he looked like after riding on the pumpkin planter last week. If you missed that video, it was posted yesterday. The second photo is a normal picture of him. (I use the term “normal” loosely! 🤪) Marty really likes to get into his work! #KellersFarmstand #familyfarm #oswego #oswegoil #oswegoillinois #goofyfarmer #dirtyface #illinoisfarmers #illinoisfarm #illinoisfarming #ilfarmer #ilfarmfamilies

I’m on year 25 of soft smiling like it’s my job. I’ve been told many times I look (and probably act) just like I did as a little kid.
.
.

I was thinking this morning about how excited 5 year old me would be about my current life. I always told people when I grew up I wanted to “have a bakery with weenie dogs.” 1: that has to be against health code 2: I would still love that. .
.

I spent most my days as a tiny little cat lady playing in my moms ridiculously amazing gardens. My sister and I spent hours making jewelry and fairy houses and learning all the plant things from our mom. .
.

5 year old me loved flowers, animals, egg salad, wearing house shoes outside, watching Martha Stewart, and never minded being dirty. My life isn’t all that different right now (there’s just a lot more coffee involved) and I couldn’t be happier about it. Please swipe right to see proof that I haven’t changed a bit. .
.

Happy Friday friends!! ♥️ #fridayintroductions

🎃 Marty and Nik planted 20 acres of #pumpkins last week. Marty took video while keeping an eye on the planter. He occasionally had to switch pumpkin seed varieties as they went along. Marty makes his goofy cameo appearance at the end of the video! #KellersFarmstand #plantingpumpkins #familyfarm #oswego #oswegoil #oswegoillinois #illinoisfarm #illinoisfarmers #illinoisfarming #pumpkinfarm #pumpkinfarmers

It’s that time of year. The first wedding weekend of the season. The guys are in the field planting. Coffee breaks at 5pm. Flowers to process. Markets to prep for. Transplants to go out. Pizza for dinner. 😂 .
.

This is what I wish for when I’m cooped up at my desk all winter. It’s sweaty and exhausting and definitely stressful at times but it’s what it’s all about!! .
.

This is also the time when I have the most pretty things to take picture of and fun stuff to post about. But I get busy and lose my phone and realize I haven’t posted in a week. 🤷🏼‍♀️ so here’s a little preview of what’s coming out of the field!! .
.

P.S. does anyone else sleep SO freakin good when they’re working hard all day? The best. 💤
