COMATOSE BERRY PLANTS!!!
The berry plants that have survived the elements have decided to put themselves into a deep sleep, I am sure they are hoping to awaken to calm winds, fresh air, sunshine with a hint of rain! We still have berries, but are watching them ripen very slowly. We will be picking again on Thursday morning, at 9:00am, if all goes well. Check the blog early in the morning for an updated post. The farmer says he has never seen the wind and drought like this in many years. Our hearts go out to those that are dealing with much more severe conditions than we are. The Farmers team at the fire station are helping fight the East Texas wildfires......I am not going to complain about a few dried up strawberry plants and blowing sand. From our farmstead to your table thank you for all of your support!!
