Indigo Farms Update Aug 3

Posted 8/3/2014 5:44pm by Sam Bellamy.

 It is fig season and this week has been heavy with figs. I hope you got some if you are wanting volume. We will continue to have figs but will be changing varieties perhaps by week's end. Some of you have put up fig preserves which is a southern favorite.

  Our watermelons have been on the move. This year we have a seedless version of the yellow fleshed watermelon that many like. In the past the yellow doll watermelon would be excellent but after two or three days it would tend to over ripen easily. We hope that these seedless varieties will not be so inclined. We have had a crop that looked super but this constant wet weather is working hard against reaching the potential. Check out the different watermelons. There have been some very good Crimson sweet and Sangria watermelons. Both are seeded.

  The tomatoes have been super good. the heirlooms have made many people happy. It is still not too late to get some of that happiness.

 The peppers and eggplant are both good. If you need a volume of eggplant ask about a volume discount.

  We are continuing to plant and sow. There are many things going on this time of year. Preparing next year's strawberries, getting ready for the Fall event days, PYO pumpkins , NIght time hayrides , school tours, planting small grain and very importantly the fall and winter crops.

The blueberry PYO has ended for this year. we still have a limited amount in the market.

Important reminder! Make sure you get peach pound cake while the season is still here. same with tomato pie and other good pies. Enjoy these wonderful smells and tastes of summer. It is a good excuse to put some real farm goodness in you.
