One of our visitors sent these lovely pictures taken on a picking excursion last week. WOW!!! We are still picking blackberries this week, and will be picking for another two or three weeks. The mornings are the best time to pick, so we start at about 9:00 AM and pick until around 11:00, as the heat sets in. We are bustling here on the farm, still cutting and bringing in hay for the winter, the first basket of black eyed peas was picked yesterday, the corn is starting to silk, and the tomatoes are ripening by the bushel. The self serve table in the front of the market has kept visitors in produce when we are not able to be at the market. There is hope for melons, as we see the young'ins peeking out from under the greenery. The days are long and full, but we are so grateful for the blessings of the harvest we bring in each day. BLACKBERRY UPDATE: AS OF NOON FRIDAY, THERE WILL BE A LIMITED AMOUNT OF BLACKBERRIES ON SATURDAY, AS WE HAD A BUSY WEEK OF PICKING. MORE WILL BE RIPE NEXT WEEK!!! From our farmstead to your table, thank you for all of your support!!!
