Last few weeks of 2019 season

Looking for mid-summer fresh produce? U-pick Celeste figs still producing heavily, but only for another week or so. LSU Purple, LSU Gold, and Magnolia figs will be ripe soon. U-Pick thornless blackberries still available on the 13 rows that put on a second (mid-summer) crop. U-pick zinnias still blooming like crazy! U-pick vegs include: okra, peppers, kale, red cabbage and eggplant, and a few tomatoes. Pre-picked for sale in market: Our own homegrown peaches ( regular and white flesh), nectarines, cantaloupes, watermelon, sweet basil, tomatoes and more. It’s a great year for cantaloupes–the small amount of rain we’ve had has increased the flavor and sweetness! Last year we closed the farm for the year on August 4 (2018), and we will close again this year when the figs are over, so hurry in soon before the 2019 season ends!

Blackberries picked by a customer on 7-10-19.
Celeste figs picked by a customer on 7-11-19.
Cut cantaloupe on left is standard type, cut one on right is “Dove.”
We have lots of pre-picked cantaloupes for sale in the market. We are picking around 100 cantaloupes per day right now, but the season is very short. This is one of our best years ever for cantaloupes. The small amount of rain we have received makes for a sweeter cantaloupe since the sugar content is not diluted by excess water.
Peaches are still coming in, but we only have 2 varieties left to pick, so hurry in if you want pre-picked peaches this year.
Great year for watermelons!
Tomatoes are getting close to being over, but we do have some red and yellow (low-acid) ones.
Sweet basil–all you can put in our bag for only $1.00!
Heirloom Louisiana Green Velvet okra loves the Texas Summer Heat!
Zinnias–all you can cut and put in a 16 oz. Solo cup for $3.00.

This may be best berry picking week of the year!
