Peak Berry season starts 5-24-22
PEAK BLACKBERRY SEASON BEGINS TUES. 5/24/22! All of the rows of berries are open for picking! The next several weeks will be the best picking times of the season, but come early and beat the heat. See yellow sign for what is available. We just added okra, eggplant, dill, tomato and zinnia picking to the list. PLEASE DO NOT PICK PEACHES--THEY ARE NOT RIPE YET!! Blackberries are the ONLY fruit available now. NECTARINE SEASON IS OVER FOR NOW. Very important that you bring clippers for flowers and some vegs. Cut sunflower stems with a pocket knife or your clippers (not with our kindergarten scissors please!) Eggplant must be cut--twisting the stem breaks the plant and many future eggplants are wasted. Zinnias also must be cut--do not twist stem off. Please get zinnia cutting directions before you pick so you don't cut the future blooms. Do you see a trend here? Properly harvested veggies and flowers will ensure a longer season, but improper harvesting severely impacts future production. We greatly appreciate you cooperation in properly harvesting the crops. Peak berry season is upon us now, so come out and fill your boxes while you can! Open Tues. thru Sunday, 7:30am-1:00 pm, weather permitting. Pickers must check in before 12:30pm and be weighed/paid by our 1:00pm sharp closing time. Some rain predicted this week, so if we will have to be closed for the day, a post will be made before 7:00am here and on Facebook.. If we open regular time, but close early due to rain, an update will be made as soon as possible.
