The days are flying by and summer is approaching! On the farm warm weather means tomatoes, peppers, corn, okra, black eyed peas, eggplant , green beans, garlic, and ........ flies. We have had a good showing of new potatoes and onions and the sugar snap peas have gone crazy! The cucumbers are finally making themselves known, as well as the summer squash. Even though the lettuce and spinach have slowed down a bit, the swiss chard has been valiant in growing quickly after cuttings. We picked our first blackberries and they were delicious. The raspberries will be a couple of weeks. We will probably harvest the first peaches next week. The green beans are a little slow, as we were not able to get them in as early, due to the wet weather we had. Our market is open on Saturday from 10:00 am until 4:00pm. We will try to have a good supply of vegetables picked, so everyone will have a good selection when they stop by. We will post what will be available for u-pick . We are not sure about the blackberries, as this is our second year and we were not supposed to get many berries, but the bushes have berries -a-plenty. We will certainly have some in the market, and if there are more than we can sell, we will go ahead and start the u-pick blackberries this year. Also we now have farm raised ground beef @ $4. 00 per lb. It is delicious,and very lean . From our farmstead to your table, thank you for all of your support!
