Calling all Fig Fanatics! Fig-picking season has begun and there will be more and more ripening each day for a while. Smart pickers will arrive early in the day while temps are at their coolest. Currently, the only variety ripe is Celeste (aka Texas Sugar Fig). Pick them when they have ANY amount of color on them. They WILL ripen a little more after they are picked, just don’t pick them too green. Pick-Your-Own Fig price $4.00/lb. Re-usable picking box $2.00 each (box holds about 10 lbs. fruit) Field entry $1.00/person. Soon we will have LSU Purple, LSU Gold, and Magnolia figs for picking, but none ready yet. At this time, we do NOT have pre-picked figs for sale, only U-Pick. Blackberry season has mostly ended, but there are still A FEW berries to pick if you really look under leaves, etc. Lots of zinnias to pick, also sunflowers, okra, peppers, eggplant, brussel sprouts, cabbage and more. Sorry, NO PICK-YOUR-OWN PEACHES. We have lots of pre-picked peaches for sale in our market, along with pre-picked cantaloupes, nectarines watermelon, and more. Regular Hours: Closed Monday, Open Tuesday thru Sunday 7:30 am-1:00 pm. WE WILL BE CLOSED THURSDAY, JULY 4, 2019. All pickers please arrive by 12:30 so you can pick, weigh and pay by our 1:00 pm closing time. Fig pickers may be more comfortable wearing a long-sleeved cotton shirt and thin disposable plastic gloves.
No rain here since 1 inch on Wed. morning, so thornless blackberry picking is great today. Vines are loaded and fields are in good shape. Open 7:30 am -1:00 pm daily except closed Monday. Early Bird Special: Stamp box 7:30 am -9:00 am and pick at least 5 lbs thornless blackberries, SAVE $1 per lb, so berries COST $4/lb instead of regular $5/lb. Hurry in and pick while berries are plentiful and picking is soooo easy! Lots of veggies and zinnias to pick too.
