  It has been quite an adventure this year. The strawberry crop has been off for everyone but especially so for us.  We miss PYO very much and one reason is there are some of you that we see about once a week during the strawberry season. Naturally  we miss the needed income as well. For the second year Spring has been pushed further into summer. The rain kept up keeping planting off schedule. We have worked to get the tomatoes set out and they look good so far.

   Thinking of rain and water, this year we aimed at getting the watermelons ready before July . They are out and have a good start. We have planted more seedless melons and added some new varieties. We even planted some Charleston grays. This is a variety that has a rich history in this area. It was a watermelon that my grandfather was very fond of. My grandfather was known for his watermelons. We still have more plantings of tomatoes /peppers, beans,squash & cukes and melons to go yet.

  Meanwhile, the organic broccoli, kale, and kohlrabi are looking real good. The cabbage is coming along and we could be cutting some by the end of the week. The potato crop looks very interesting. I don't have time to take pictures but there have many times I wish I could. The organic potato crop looks fantastic. If you want organic vegetables please email or call so we can hold your order. Most organic production is going to Myrtle's Market where people are asking for it.

  So we will have to  keep on the sunny side. There are some good things coming up, literally!

The weather is affecting us all as Ana churns off the coast. Sarah will be at the Myrtle's market Saturday morning. She will have strawberries and vegetables.

 It has been a testy spring but many things are beginning to brighten up. The strawberries are beginning to get more volume. This means there are more at the market. PYO is still uncertain. There was considerable deer damage done in late December that has this year's crop way off the norm.

 Now is the time for kohlrabi, kale, green onions, garden peas. Other cool season crops will be joining these a later. We are growing tomatoes, watermelons ,corn, squash, beans, cucumbers and more. The blueberries are looking very good this year.

Sarah will be at Myrtle's Market on Joe White avenue in Myrtle Beach Wednesday! The season still continues to be slow but with sunshine somethings are looking up. What is at the markets?  At both markets ( the Farm and Myrtle's market ) some strawberries, nice kale, three varieties of romaine lettuce, green star, two star lettuce, new red fire, concept and Cherokee are semi romaine types. This should satisfy for some interesting salads. Green onions are beginning fairly strong now. At the market with Sarah, she will have  limited amounts of organic asparagus, radish, kohlrabi, kale, lettuce and strawberries as well.

    We are picking some strawberries for the market. We have considerable set back on the Pick Your own field due to December deer damage. We are having to wait to see how the crop responds. Unfortunately, this means for us PYO will be late this year. In 34 years of growing strawberries we have never had to face this kind of challenge. Please bear with us. We have strawberries at the market. Our greens are really benefiting from this weather! We have some great kale right now. The lettuce and Kohlrabi are right behind it. Broccoli and cabbage  are right around the corner.

    Organically, the strawberries are really pretty. The lettuce is in it's prime. Green onions are available. A few mushrooms are coming in, a little dandelion maturing, radishes are not far off. Kale, broccoli, kohlrabi are coming  soon. If you are interested in organic produce it is best that you set up a time for pick up and let us hold it for you. Thanks.

Good news, we will be opening Tuesday. It will likely be a slow start as many things are still behind schedule but they should be coming soon as well.

Happy long awaited Spring!  I find it hard to express just how glad I am to have Spring weather. Many of you have asked when are we opening and when will the strawberries be ripe. I have been slow to answer because I don't want to tell you something that may be misleading.

 Opening most likely before the end of this coming week. Still not exactly certain. Things are behind in the field and we would want more to offer but some of the crops are getting there.

Strawberries are really behind. We will have some likely first week in April but PYO will definitely be later this year. My hope is that this weather will provide some compensation.

Thanks for your patience and for wanting to support us. It is important to us that we not just be a business that sells but actually serves you in ways that are meaningful and good.

Well glad tidings seems very appropriate since we were just able to restore our email. We have not been able to send any news from hear until we enlarged the capacity.

  So if you have not put in an order for baked goods yet, please know we are still taking orders. I would not wait too late since we need to gauge our inventory closely.

  We have some really nice pecans that we have shelled ourselves. If you are looking for quality  nuts that have been carefully shelled then check us out. Sweet potatoes, greens, onions, turnips, kale are still available.  The produce market has lots more items and some very good Christmas ideas such as jams , chows, preserves and gift certificates.
