It has been heart breaking to see all the damage to the beautiful trees around the farm. It depresses me to drive home and see all the topless trunks along Ervin Rd and Holladay Road. Luckily, the garden did not have damage except for the fence. We were able to replace the seven metal posts and 100 feet of fence quickly so the deer didn't get a chance to dine on the veggies. Some of the electric repair trucks drove over my blackberries and raspberries. Should I complain. I think not. I am grateful that they were able to get repairs done so quickly. So come on out next week. We will be open 8am to noon each day.
This has been a surprise. Veggies should have been ripe sooner. Flowers should be blooming. For whatever reasons the season is slow. We are designed to provide fresh vegetables. We don't have enough produce to provide bushels of anything for canning, pickling, or freezing. Just so you know. Just for fresh eating...a week at a time. Come visit us to see what we mean.
Mother Nature dictates our opening date. We have 32 varieties of tomatoes. When we have ripe ones available, we will open for picking. I am guessing that will be about the second week in July. This year we will be open every day except Sunday. Hours each day will be 8 am to noon. We will be happy to open the field by appointment as well. An email or phone call the day before you want to pick will usually work. I will blog our opening date as soon as we know when. Our design is to provide fresh food, so we will never have bushels of produce for canning or freezing. The idea is to come out and pick what you will eat for the week. We will help you learn how to recognize the ripest fruits and veggies. Come out for a fun time!
