May visit to Schreiners

Once a year, during the Keizer Iris Festival, Schreiners lets registered "wanderers" walk through their fields on a 5K or 10K walk. Even though bloom was barely starting this year, it was still an interesting walk through part of their 200 acres!

Mostly medians in this photo:

I did see a few intriguing TB seedlings:

But the humongous compost hill was a rare treat too:

I suspect this was only one of many compost piles --each bigger than my own little plot of irises!

I always enjoy their display gardens. A real education.

200 acres!! I'd love to have 1 acre!

Thanks for showing us this perspective of their operation.

RE: May visit to Schreiners

Wow! I am so jealous. I have purchased several times from Schrieners and have even contemplated a trip out west just to visit.
Thanks for sharing, I bet it was spectacular to see the 200 acres of iris.
