 We currently have a beautiful flush of Shitake mushrooms both at Myrtle's market and the farm market. Fresh cut tendergreens, mustard, turnip greens, arugula, rape and radishes are being harvested. The first of the winter squash and the Fall beans and peas are starting to come in as well. Muscadine grapes are really looking good! If you are a fan of excellent eggplant ask about the organic eggplant varieties available. Be sure to check out the peppers also. Yes we still have peaches and tomatoes.

PYO blueberries will be available Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, 7:30-10:30. If you do not see someone at the field go to the market before you go into the field.

 We are still able to get O' Henry peaches. That variety will not be available for long so catch them now.

Blueberry picking continues to look good. PYO for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday mornings. 7:30 to 10:30.

Watermelon season has hit the sweet spot. The seedless have been fantastic. The prices are really good too. We still have some yellow flesh melons but don't expect to be able to have them after this week .

Peach season is hitting well also. Now is the time to buy them in volume.

The picture of the seedless watermelon is one of our watermelons taken by a friend. She was slicing the melon in pieces and this is what she found. It makes a point. A good watermelon has to have a good heart!

   The blueberry field will be open Thursday morning 7:30 to 10:30. It will be closed Friday and open back on Saturday morning. PLEASE note that on Saturday the 25th there will be a race on the farm between two competing road runner clubs. For PYO blueberries just follow the blueberry signs to the field. You will be going to the field a different way.

    Be sure to check out the seedless watermelons. They are really good right now!!

PYO will be open Tuesday and Wednesday and Saturday. 7:30 to 10:30am. Thursday and Friday we will wait and see how the weather is on those days.

 Tomatoes, watermelons and peaches are on the big stage this week. Now is the time to try different varieties of watermelon. They are priced really easy for you to try several different kinds without spending lots of money.

 The heat is on and so we have to keep the water on too. Staying cool and minimizing stress is important to the crops and us people. The bakery has some neat ways to cool of such as ice cream, pies, cakes, desserts and milk shakes.  Enjoy the season, the calendar is moving summer along.

 PYO blueberries will be open Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday mornings 7:30 to 10:30 am. Please do bring a container to take your berries home in. It remains very hot so we are not encouraging people to pick later than 10:30 for now. The berries look good. We are irrigating. The garden blue variety is abundant right now. They are the small dark sweet berries that have lots of flavor. The fields will likely be open later in the week also.

  We encourage you to enjoy the corn. We are still getting some of the best corn I've had in years. This Abbot Cobb variety is non GMO, a super sweet that was bred with primary attention given to seed strength. So much of good fruit rests on a good plant. I am impressed with what they have done.

  It is peak peach season. We should have peaches by the basket as well as peach pound cake and other favorites in the bakery. If you haven't tried the tomato pie ask someone about it who has. You don't want to miss out on good thing especially when it is in season.

Blueberry fields will be open Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday. 7:30 am to 10:30am. Please bring a container to take your berries home in. This is a good time for blueberries. Stocking your freezer with blueberries is one of the best things you can do for your health ( assuming you will eat them).

  It is a great time for tomatoes, heirlooms, baby romas and romas. Ask about canning tomatoes.
