Getting You  Caught Up

Getting You Caught Up

I am not implying that you are behind in anyway. I would expect that we would be behind on laundry, dishes, housecleaning, keeping the pantry organized, and picking up dog poop in the yard. I am behind on changing the oil in my truck. Maybe I just don’t trust Ford’s math. So I keep pushing the reset button, thinking its just a conspiracy to try and get more revenue out of me. Probably not. I do need to go get my oil changed. I will also confess that I am behind on bringing you up to speed on what has been going on at High-Hand. For the last 30 months we have been extremely busy navigating pandemics and closures while forging ahead with building our dream.

I think it is easier to build a dream than to live it. I don’t know your take on that but thats mine. For the last 20 years we have been doing just that, building a dream. The events of the last few years have not stopped us from the journey.

Let me get you caught up. I am not going to come pick up poop in your yard and you certainly don’t want me organizing your pantry. I would just eat the candy you forgot you had. Here’s what has been going on at High-Hand for the last 30 months.

The Cafe

We toyed around with opening up for dinners, as in the past. But then a lightbulb went on. More about that later. So, as always, the cafe is serving great ingredients prepared well and served with a smile. Click here to join us for weekday lunch and weekend brunch.

The nursery is home to some of the most unique Japanese Maples, plants, and flowers grown in our own green houses. Waiting for a table at the cafe? Take a walk through the greenhouse and just breathe.

The Cat

Don’t worry about Petunia, she is living comfortably in her new Tillandsia home. If you want to buy an air plant you will have to go through her.

Maple Rock

They say that the measure of a garden is in the degree for which it haunts you after you have left it. While we haven’t opened up Maple Rock since 2019. The gardens are doing wonderful. We hope to open the gardens back up next year for our Mother’s Day weekend event.
