    We have a good supply of peaches so buying by the basket is possible. THe bakery has peach pound cake also.

     The tomato outlook has one of the best heirloom selections anywhere around. Cherokee Purple, German Johnson, Mr. stripey, yellow tomatoes, baby romas, romas, small cherry type and more. The bakery has tomato pies!! They are good!

      We have some very good corn. The  white corn is very good. We are picking bicolor and yellow now. All of these are non GMO varieties.

      This is a good time for cantaloupes also. Our watermelons are coming in well. We have sugar babies, Charleston greys, yellow seedless, seedless reds and mickey lees, etc. They come with a good price so check them out.

 PYO blueberries will be open Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday mornings 7:30 to 10:30 am. Please do bring a container to take your berries home in. It remains very hot so we are not encouraging people to pick later than 10:30 for now. The berries look good. We are irrigating. The garden blue variety is abundant right now. They are the small dark sweet berries that have lots of flavor. The fields will likely be open later in the week also.

  We encourage you to enjoy the corn. We are still getting some of the best corn I've had in years. This Abbot Cobb variety is non GMO, a super sweet that was bred with primary attention given to seed strength. So much of good fruit rests on a good plant. I am impressed with what they have done.

  It is peak peach season. We should have peaches by the basket as well as peach pound cake and other favorites in the bakery. If you haven't tried the tomato pie ask someone about it who has. You don't want to miss out on good thing especially when it is in season.

Blueberry fields will be open Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday. 7:30 am to 10:30am. Please bring a container to take your berries home in. This is a good time for blueberries. Stocking your freezer with blueberries is one of the best things you can do for your health ( assuming you will eat them).

  It is a great time for tomatoes, heirlooms, baby romas and romas. Ask about canning tomatoes.

 We currently are selling some of the best white sweet corn. You may consider it to be the best you have eaten. This "summer sweet" variety is as good a corn as I can remember. I encourage you to get while you can.

Good news. The blueberry field will be open Friday and Saturday mornings. There are  some really nice berries to be picked! Open at 8 am to 9:45 am. If you come early please wait for someone to get there. We may be able to get started at 7:30 am if we can get enough other chores done ahead. It is recommended that you bring something to take your berries home in. Thanks!

  The blueberries are beginning to come through so you can anticipate more PYO days and times. The field is scheduled for Tuesday morning ( June 23 )  and Thursday morning ( June 25) for the next two pickings. It looks as if Friday ( June 26) may get the nod instead of Saturday due to much needed rain. The field opens at 8 am Tuesday. If you come ahead of time please wait for someone. It may well be we will have someone ready at 7:30 but do wait for them. There have been some very nice berries picked so far.

  We are just getting started with tomatoes. The heirlooms are beginning so for the serious tomato lover pay attention this is your notice. this hot weather is hard on tomatoes. With the temperatures remaining so high for so long it often affects fruit set. The extreme heat affects corn pollination as well. So don't take summer vegetables for granted! Enjoy them while and when you have them. Squash , cukes , okra and beans are coming in now.

   Peaches, plums are in with figs coming in a few weeks.

 The Bakery has peach short cake, blueberry pies, ice cream , milkshakes and other cool desserts to help make the summer a flavorful one.
