Spreading the Love





 Many of us know 1st and 2nd Man from the blog, Two Men and a Little Farm.   

They wanted to move from the busy city life, to a calm, more laid back, place like the country.  When a good friend (who was like family) offered to sell her country home and land to them, (because she wanted to move to Florida to be close to her son)  1st and 2nd Man bought the place, and started working to make their laid back, calm life, dream come true. 

If you follow their blog, you’ll notice weekly inspirational posts relating to gardens and flowers.  Ultimately, they have plans for gardens with beautiful flowers on the farm.  They’ve been working on clearing out old garden beds, old trees, built up bushes and vines, and leveling out areas to make beautiful flower beds, and green grass, instead of brown grass.

Recently they purchased bees, and have 2 beehives on the property.  Bee’s need pollen to survive, and to build their world; I would like to see their beehives succeed.  I’m sending some flowers seeds to help with their inspirations of planting plenty of flowers to feed their bees. 

If you stop by their blog and read their posts, you can feel the same excitement and happiness I feel when reading the words they’ve typed. 

Gail from At the Farm, and I wanted to reach out and help 1st and 2nd Man plant their garden.  Gail is working on a box of live plants to send, and I’m sending seeds I’ve saved from my garden last year.

How cool would it be to have Blogger friends volunteer to send a packet of seeds to help 1st and 2nd Man walk this path toward their dreams?  


If you would like to send our friends a packet of seeds or a box of real plants/flowers, stop by their blog, Two Men and a Little Farm and tell them Sandy over at Oklahoma Transient sent you, and ask for their mailing address.

  1. I love these flowers.

    I have discovered many purple cone flower (eckanasia) babies and some packed to go.

    May this idea blossom!

    1. Gail,

      I love them too, and plant them all the time because these flowers attract butterflies, bees, and put a smile on my face.

      Echinacea (cone flower) are beautiful flowers and are great for medicinal use for colds and infections.

      I truly hope our idea does blossom with other blogger friends.

  5. They are doing better than I have so far. I'm still "pondering" my garden. Sounds like you will get them "locked on" with their gardening here pretty quick.

    1. Harry,

      Once you figure out if you want a garden, then it's the task of figuring out what you would like to plant. Let us know if you're going to do a garden.....your friends maybe able to help.

    1. JUGM,

      I know they would love to receive some seeds from you. I'm not sure what they're plans are for the large cleared areas. There was mention of a grain/grass. We shall see!!

      Not drying out yet. More rain and severe storms heading our way. You can feel coming.
