Pick Your Own Update and More
Monday the blueberry field will be open. Ask about the blackberry field. I apologize for not being able to be at the farm Saturday when the first people came to pick blackberries. We are on the last two varieties. It is not always easy to tell when we have enough for pick your own. So please ask to see if they are available.
This is peach season so take advantage of it. All our varieties are freestone at this point in the season. We have several ways to buy peaches, by the pound, basket, box or sometimes the really neat deal of smaller peaches at a very low price. I try to pick our peaches ripe which means they can be a little soft but that is the stage where the maximum flavor is best. We still have Carolina Belle and are in the midst of the Winblo variety. Georgia Belle and Sun Prince are coming soon. Winblo and Sun Prince are both great tasting peaches. Both are slow to brown after you cut them. Both great for freezing , canning or just by themselves. I plan to put some in yogurt for supper! Thinking of great ways to eat peaches, one of my all time favorites is Georgia or Carolina Belle peaches on a fresh baked warm open biscuit. Perhaps a lot depends on the biscuit but as a dessert my experience with this has it ranked with some of the best ever. It is simple, but done well it is a true taste of the South!
This is fruit season, the figs are quite a bit behind their normal schedule but are still to come. The dry weather is not helping at this extreme level.
