Pre-Weekend Update: Open Friday, Saturday, Sunday (July 1, 2, and 3, 2022), 7:30am-1:00pm, WEATHER PERMITTING! For the latest info for this weekend, visit this page each morning after 6:45am for a weather update. The weather has been unpredictable all week, but we will be open if at all possible. U-Pick available ‘til picked out: More and more Celeste Figs every day, some thornless blackberries, tomatoes, okra, eggplant, kale, dinosaur kale, green onions, Swiss chard, purple-hull peas, cucumbers (few), dill, carrots, peppers (few), sunflowers and zinnias. Pre-picked, for sale in market (all grown here!): Freestone peaches, LOTS of watermelons (red/yellow meat), LOTS of cantaloupes, butternut squash, tomatoes and more. Several boxes of canning Roma tomatoes available. ORCHARD IS CLOSED FOR ALL U-PICK EXCEPT CELESTE FIGS. ORANGE TRAFFIC CONES ARE PLACED NEAR THE ROWS WITH RIPE CELESTE FIGS (see photo). PLEASE DO NOT PICK FROM ANY OTHER FRUIT TREES IN THE ORCHARD, SO THAT MEANS NO U-PICK PEACHES, OR ANY OTHER FRUIT. WE ASK THAT NO ONE TOUCH THE PEACHES/PEACH TREES, AND PLEASE PLEASE WATCH YOUR CHILDREN CLOSELY SO THAT THEY DON’T DAMAGE TREES OR FRUIT. PEACHES ARE GETTING CLOSE TO RIPENING ENOUGH FOR U-PICK, BUT NOT READY YET. Touching the peaches before they are ripe removes the fuzz and allows them to sunburn, and bacteria from your touch causes disease on the fruit. Please bring shears to cut sunflowers, zinnias, eggplant, dill and okra. Pickers must check in at market before 12:30pm and weigh & pay by our 1:00pm sharp closing time. We MAY open July 4th if we get rained out some weekend days and fields need picking, but can’t make that call yet.
