2019 Blackberry season is starting to wind down, but there are still LOTS of berries to pick. In early May, when you picked the HUGE berries, we promised you a second crop late in the season, which is starting to produce, but the berries are not quite as large as the May ones. Peach season is in early peak, with Mid-Pride trees producing some that taste as good as some famous mail-order peaches, with more varieties following soon. Low rainfall levels have been great for watermelons and cantaloupes. (Peaches, watermelons, and cantaloupes are NOT available for U-Pick, only sold pre-picked in market.) The U-Pick tomatoes are plentiful, but not for too much longer, so get them while you can. The U-Pick Squash, Okra, Peppers, Red and Green Cabbage, and Eggplant are producing well. U-Pick Figs are loaded but not ripe yet. The U-Pick Zinnias are thriving in the heat, so there are more than ever to pick now.
