Ginseng

HSU’s also owns ginseng farms and gives tours of the ginseng as well. Ginseng is a very important farming industry here in Wisconsin. The soil and weather is perfect for growing it here.

With the different variety of sunflowers at the Sunflower Maze, they were all blooming at different times. So you could go back and visit to see the next ones in bloom.

You are looking at a variety of sunflower that has many more petals on it than any of the others. These flowers were much smaller, but still very tall. This is from the post Sunflower Maze Days at HSU.

Not only can you spend a couple of hours walking through the maze,  you can purchase them if you’d like to take a few home. That was one of the reasons I went, was to buy several for making cold process soap. Yes, you can make soap from the petals of those happy sunny flowers.

Garden

Once you’ve finished your walk through at the sunflower maze. Head on over to the garden. They plant a garden every year for the visitors to pick some fresh organic produce for free. This is really a great for kids who’ve never been in  garden before. Or who’ve never picked and ate fresh veggies right off the vine. I think it’s important for everyone to now how to grow their own food. It tastes so much better and it’s very satisfying, knowing you grew that food for yourself. All that hard work of planting and nurturing those plants from seeds is well worth it. Even if you only have a tiny space, you can grow something.

Take a rest one of the benches and eat a few cherry tomatoes or peas. Sit back and enjoy the fresh country air.

Fun in the Fall

There is so much to do and see in the fall months through out Wisconsin, it most definitely is my favorite time of the year! The colors, cool dry air and the wonderful harvest we get, to celebrate. Then theirs apple cider and hot chocolate with  roaring bonfires, these are the things that make fall great. I’d love to hear what are your favorite things to do in the fall, maybe it’s hiking or even camping. Or even just taking a drive, to go see the beautiful leaves changing. Either way, get outdoors and enjoy your day!
