Farm and market is expected to be open Sat. 5/16/20, regular hours from 7:30am til 1:00pm. U-Pick will be only available for thornless blackberries, but NO VEGETABLE PICKING due to rain we received this afternoon. The berry fields are covered in grass and drain much better than the plowed ground in the vegetable fields, as you can see in these photos taken 6:00 pm Friday 5/15/20 after the rain.
Tex-Star Peaches still maturing, but not ready for the farmer to pick and sell in the market. They have color, but will about double in size when they are fully mature. This is one reason we don't have U-Pick peaches--just because they have color, doesn't mean they are anywhere near ready to pick. The farmer will pick them at the optimum time.
Farm is open tomorrow (Tues 5/5/20) 7:30am-1:00pm. Lots of thornless blackberries ripened in the last two days, but we will still limit each picker to one quart zip-top bag. A second variety of blackberries will ripen in about 10 days, and soon after that the other 3 varieties will be ready. Tomorrow we will have these vegs for U-Pick: kale, dinosaur kale, beets, Napa cabbage, brussel sprouts, collards, green onions and a few carrots. Pre-picked in the market will be: lettuce, red & green cabbage, 1015 onions, nectarines, red potatoes (dug today) and a few blackberries. Thanks everyone for maintaining your social distance but still coming out to enjoy the side open skies of Waller, Texas.
