Blueberry PYO is open this Monday ( 7 am to 10 am) , Wednesday and Saturday mornings. The berries are fantastic. Every year I concern myself with the flavor, size and quality. This year the fruit set has been excellent for most varieties ( especially with the later varieties). Many of you have picked before and know that the season should go on through July and into August. You also likely know that the different varieties have their own particular characteristics. It should be an exciting season.

   Blackberry PYO is open during store hours Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. Now is a good time to pick balckberries! Blueberries are a healthy delight!

The Blackberry field is open for pick your own on Wednesdays and Saturdays. The hours are the same as the store hours. Check and Check out is at the Produce market.

The Blueberry field will be open this Saturday at 7 am. It will likely close at 9 am. The reason for this is that so many people tend to pick fruit that is not fully ripe. That fruit is lacking in flavor and size. To avoid this we limit the amount of time for picking.

Tender squash and fresh colorful beans have been seen coming from the fields. Yellow squash, patty pan squash, yellow zuchinni, Cos or magda zuchinni, green zuchinni are all coming in well now. You may not be familar with Cos zuchinni. Last year we had a customer who cooked it as a stuffed vegetable/meat combination. If you are interested now is the time to get it. We have some tender fresh beans. Snaps, half runners , yellow wax beans are all coming off the farm. We still have some garden peas and cucumbers. Blackberries are coming in as well. The high bush blueberries are beginning. the PYO and rabbit eye blueberries should begin about June 20th. Meanwhile look for peaches to start about June 10th. Plums will be about then or shortly after. Tomaotes, cantaloupes and melons will not be long either.
