Our two orphans have found each other, each morning Bitty Kit is found snoozing on top of Sasha. She awaits her share of the bottle at breakfast and supper time. Nature is amazing! This has been a whirlwind week with the end of blackberry season, the beginning of tomato and sweet corn season. The Farmers son picks corn and tomatoes for our honor system, serve yourself table, in front of the market. He is having a hard time keeping up with the demand. The sweet corn this year is superb. It is an old hybrid (Not GMO) that is as sweet as candy..... just ask the worm that sits atop every ear.(we don't spray)There are still a few blackberries, but picking will be by appointment only this last couple of weeks, to assure there will be berries to pick. The black eyed peas are exploding on the vines. They are the last U-Pick crop available. We will pick on the halves, you pick one for you and one for me, yours is free! Or you can pick for $25 a bushel. If I pick them, you will have to wait until you see wings on your bacon! The Farmers son will pick them for $40 a bushel. Summer is rolling in, with the rain we have been blessed with and the cooler temperatures, the crops may last a little longer before being decimated by the heat. It is almost time to plant pumpkins for fall. MARKET HOURS: Saturday from 10:00 AM until 4:00 PM. Call ahead for an appointment for dairy pickup throughout the week. The CSA is still at capacity, thank you to all of you who are participating. We will have several more weeks of the Spring/Summer crops. During the heat of mid July and early August, there will be a lull, then we will continue preparing the shares through the fall and into winter. From our farmstead to your table, thank you for all of your support!!!
