Thanks everyone who came out and braved the damp, cool weather and picked berries and zinnias. It turned out to be a fun day for the kids who had a day off from school, and thankfully we have had no more rain since last night. Waller MAY have some precipitation early Saturday morning, but clearing late morning. LOTS of berries still to pick!

WEATHER UPDATE: thankfully, here in Waller we got less than ½” of rain since Monday, while other areas around Houston got 8-9” or more. Currently (2:30 pm Wednesday) the approaching storm is moving quickly and looks like we may escape its wrath and just get minor rainfall, if any. Visit this page again tonight after 10pm for another weather report. It looks like maybe great picking Thursday and the rest of the week. Zinnias really loved the light rain and should have lots for Mother’s Day picking. Blackberries are plentiful now! Our last two customers today picked 20 lbs. of berries in only 15 minutes! Open regular hours (7:30am-1:00 pm) every day except Monday (Closed Mon.). FARM OPEN (Sunday May 12) MOTHER’S DAY FOR EXTENDED HOURS 7:30 AM TIL 3:00 PM.
