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.

It looks like the end of pick your own strawberries is here. There are still berries out there but not enough for both pick your own and for us to supply the market. You may still want to call to see if we are allowing anyone to pick at certain times. we have done this in the past occasionally.
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 strawberry field is doing some funny things. It has very little ripe fruit at the moment. The rain took away many of the would be ready berries due to water damage. But this year's crop has some life still in it. There are a significant number of green berries that we beleive will come through. As of Wednesday we know that the fileds will be closed for PYO until some time perhaps Friday or Saturday? Please call if you have questions. Thank you
