BLACKBERRIES ON MONDAY!!!
The blackberry patch will be open on MEMORIAL DAY, Monday morning for picking. We will open at 9:00 AM and will pick until around 11:30AM. Lots of blackberries will be ready. Thank you for the good turnout on Saturday. The Farmer has made a request. Would all of the parents that came, do a shake down on their kidlets. Within a 30 minute span, the keys disappeared from the new tractor. Not to say that anyone took them, but we are covering all of the bases. They have been in the ignition since we got the tractor, several months ago, he never takes them out. He was changing implements, from the hay cutter to the hay rake, when he went back, they were gone! There were lots of people walking around, and we just want to put it out there, if anyone happens to find a Kubota key in the laundry! We would not make mention of it, but during strawberry picking season, the key to our Case backhoe, that had been in it since 1984 went missing, with all of the tools in the tool compartment thrown on the ground. Farm implements are very tempting to climb on, thus the reason for our wanting parents to keep a constant, watchful eye on their children. We are not able to watch everyone at all times. We want to continue our u-pick operation, but if we cannot run our farm equipment, we will have to change our farm practices. Call ahead picking on Monday through Friday for blackberries, open picking again on Saturday. We will start a little earlier as the heat is setting in, 9:00 until around 11:30 . The blackeyed peas and the sweet corn are about a week or two out. U-pick will be available for the peas, we will pick the corn. Also as the peaches and TOMATOES are ready, we will have some in the market. The market hours are Saturday from 10:00 AM until 4:00 PM. Call anytime throughout the week for dairy pickup. From our farmstead to your table, thank you for all of your support!!!
