Indigo farms June7 update

Posted 6/7/2017 8:06am by Sam Bellamy.

  We are picking blueberries for the market. PYO will be most likely closer to mid June which is the normal time for opening the fields. The berries are very nice but due to the late March freeze we lost a lot of the early fruit. The later varieties look good.

  At the markets ( here at the farm and Myrtle's market on Joe White Ave. ) we have very good yellow squash, different types of zucchini, lots of pickling cucumbers, beans ( string, October beans, burgundy beans ), cabbage, radishes, kale, chard, turnips ( purple top and white). We are picking some blackberries but they are going extremely fast.

   We are bringing in good watermelons, corn, tomatoes and peaches. The peach crop was severely damaged by the late March freeze so we are glad to have peaches of this quality. They are cling but with excellent flavor.

  We have HONEY from the farm as well as our backup source. the honey flow was shorter than anticipated this year so again we are thankful to have a good supply of honey.
