Open Saturday, July 17, 2021: 7:30am-1:00pm. Available for U-pick: Figs, okra, peppers, kale, eggplant, tomatoes, zinnias. Status: Figs--Still picking mostly Celeste which is producing pretty good now; a FEW LSU Gold and FEW LSU Purple but their season hasn't really begun yet. Heirloom Okra--thrives in the heat, so branching out now with more to pick. Peppers--lots of sweet banana, serrano and bell. Some are staying on plant long enough to ripen and mature into lovely colors. Kale--Still lots of curly kale and Dinosaur kale. Eggplant--loves the heat, so producing like crazy (Japanese type and Globe type.) Tomatoes--season virtually over but you may still find a few. Zinnias-- blooming better than ever, so lots to pick with long stems. Available pre-picked in the market: Homegrown watermelons, cantaloupe, butternut squash, acorn squash (green/white), spaghetti squash, along with sale prices on our preserves made from our fruit. Did you notice the absence of BLACKBERRIES on the list of what's available for U-Pick? That's because there are so few ripe right now! We do have one variety that will produce a bit later, so we are all IMpatiently waiting for that day to come. Plants are responding to the days getting shorter, so that is your cue to come in ASAP or you will completely miss the season.
