We have cherry tomatoes, slicing tomatoes, and some paste tomatoes. Other veggies are sweet corn, cabbage, swiss chard, cucumbers, green beans, celery leaves, and onions.
The new year is starting. I have baby plants in the greenhouse and rows of garden waiting to be planted. The bridge is finished so that I can easily go from home to barn to gardens. Yea! Here is the new bridge.
Today we planted blueberries...tomorrow raspberries...next week strawberries. We had strawberries last year and consider them an annual planting. But the others...well, it will take at least four years for the blueberries, only two for the raspberries. We planted plums and peaches several weeks ago. Those will take longer than the blueberries.
Starting this week, we will be open by appointment only. Call 9373932174 a day ahead of when you want to pick. We have tomatoes, peppers, cabbage, summer squash, cucumbers, swiss chard, and strawberries. Give us a call to pick your own veggies for this week.
Strawberries, tomatoes, peppers, summer squash, cucumbers, swiss chard, and cabbage are all maturing now. Freshly picked food has the most nutrition for your body. Come out and enjoy the garden. 8am to noon unless it's raining or Sunday.
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.
