July 11 Indigo Farm update

Posted 7/10/2011 5:51pm by Sam Bellamy.

The blueberry fields should be open 8am to 11am Monday through Saturday this week ( July 11-17). There are some nice berries. The front field has been mowed and hopefully we will mow the back field early this week.

The end of the Winblo peaches is approaching but Sun Prince , Georgia Belle are starting up. Jefferson will not be far behind with Elberta. As the next varieties ripen , look for some good bargains on peaches by the box or basket.

We have some good watermelons. The seedless are coming in ( not as large as last year ) and have good flavor. Cantaloupes are smaller too but have good texture and taste.

Heirloom tomatoes are coming in now. This year we have several new small , grape and cherry types that you may want to try.

Normally, figs would be starting soon. They have suffered from the extreme lack of rain. Figs are a dry natured bush but this has been hard on them.

We're excited about the changing season as we plant more lettuce, seed trays with warmer season crops, transplant tiny tomato plants into larger trays and protect the earliest strawberry blossoms from frost. 

We've harvesting a rainbow of crops from bright red radishes and dark green spinach to carrots and colorful chard. 

I've already seen a few red strawberries and can't wait for Spring to arrive with buckets of juicy berries!
