1/21/23 Update on Farmer Rick's Recovery:  Rick has made great progress in his healing since the accident on Nov 11th.  The neurologists say he should go buy a lottery ticket since he's so lucky to have somehow been able to avoid a much worse outcome than he is experiencing.  He had a very bad reaction to a brain MRI on 12/21 and we had to spend 8 hrs in the ER on Christmas Day but aside from that it appears he will have very little permanent brain damage and his neck fracture has healed enough to no longer need the neck brace and he is now allowed to turn his head.  The rib fractures are healing and he needs to continue to wear his back brace for the multiple vertebre fractures and in another month they will take more xrays to see if those fractures are mended well enough for him to no longer need the brace.  He still has to be very careful and cannot lift anything over 5 pounds and he tires easiluy if he is up and walking for even a short amount of time but he is clearly on the road to recovery.  We are so gratedul for all of the support from everyone.  Thank you a thousand times over!  Marie

11/27 update on Farmer Rick's Recovery:  

Rick's fall off the roof accident was on 11/11 and he was airlifted to a trauma center, in ICU for four days then hospitalized for a week, then transferred to an in-hospital rehab, then home on Thanksgiving with continued in home visiting Rehab to continue with his recovery.  He has a broken neck, multiple breaks in his back and ribs and a traumatic brain injury.  We are hopeful for a full recovery but like the neurologist told me "This is a marathon, not a sprint", it will be many months before he will be on the mend enough to begin resuming normal day to dayness and there may be some permanent damage that only time will tell.

He came home over the holiday weekend so this week I will be arranging for his rehab team, a primary care doc that is here on the island and continue with being Nurse Marie in administering his pain meds and other meds as needed.

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you! You wonderful community of family, friends, fellow islanders and customers... your amazing outpout of love and support means the world to us!

A GoFundMe account has been set up to help with Rick's medical expenses.

Love and hugs to all!

Marie

What came first, the chocolate or the flowers??

Our farm is named after a love of chocolate and Marie's passion for gardening... as it turns out Marie already had a love of dark plants, thus our name tipped the scale toward specializing in "chocolate" flowers.  But gardeners cannot live on chocolate alone so we grow many complementary plants as well, with an emphasis on rare, hard to find perennials and edible flowers.  We have created a full line of quality chocolate themed products that are available on our website, at our farm and at select retailers around the U.S. and the world.
