News brief from the farm
The strawberries are really good right now. This hot weather is stressing the plants some but the fruit now is very good. If you are able to pick now is a good time. At $1.30 /lb that is a great price. The average PYO price for the Carolinas is $1.80/lb. Dr. John Gurstner used to talk about selling produce at the best quality for the best price. I believe we are doing that.
Blueberries are showing the first bit of color. The high bush berries should begin ripening in about 10 to 14 days, maybe earlier with this change in weather. PYO blueberries still look like mid June.
