 It continues to be a good time for strawberries. Pick your own should be open every day this week. Look for some very good prices on strawberries. We grade our berries after we pick them and now have culls that are particularly good if you want to make jam or preserves. Berries that are left from the previous day are sold at reduced prices as well.

FYI, pay attention when you buy fruits and vegetables. Many people sell strawberries by the "4qt bucket". The white mesh plastic buckets are very often a liquid quart capacity not a dry quart capacity. There is a rather big difference. So if you buy a bucket as 4 qts for $10 but only get 2-2.5 qts. It isn't such a good deal. You get more fruit in a well rounded pulp container than in a plastic clamshell container.

We are starting to get some kale, cilantro, radishes, spinach, chard and other fresh spring vegetables.

PYO may not open so early Thursday but we will evaluate the weather mid morning and see how it looks from there. So call before you just come out for PYO. We should be open Friday and Saturday.

  The plants and the fruit look good. It is a good time to pick or buy berries at the market.

 We will be at Myrtle Beach Farmer's Market Wednesday. We have a good supply of strawberries. This is a particularly good time for organic strawberries.

  If you go to the Market at the farm, we have lots of strawberries and lots of other items, including pies. Please call by today if you would like to have some organic strawberries held for you at the farm. There may not be any organic strawberries left when you get here if you don't call a ask to hold them.                                                                                                                           indigo strawberries

 Strawberries are coming into full stride! This means PYO is better, buying by the flat, good deals on culls and stem berries become more common.  Good news from the field is that the plants are in good condition. PYO on Monday looks good. The field will be open at 8 am. We think we should be open all day until about 5pm.

 There are lots of plants in the garden center and some tasty pies , treats in the bakery. delicious

  The field will be open Saturday from 8 am until about 1:30. If the berries are ripe enough we may go longer than 1:30.  The season is still young for the plants although this would be close to the the peak normally. If the weather holds up there should be lots of picking in the coming weeks.

Thursday morning 8am till about 1pm the field will be open. Then on Saturday 8am to about 4:30pm the field will be open unless it gets picked before 4:30.

  The field will be open Tuesday morning at 8:00 am. Honestly, the weather has been so different I don't quite know what to expect. Please try to bring a container to put the berries in after picking. We will have buckets to pick in but it would help everyone if you had your own container to take them home. The price is 1.30 per pound. I am hoping that the field will be dry and suitable for picking.

   uummm!

  Happy Easter! I hope the weather does not damper your spirits this Easter. There is so much to be truly thankful for. Life's deepest meaning has endured through generations and lots of  inconvenient weather.

  There will be strawberries in the market but no PYO on Saturday. There is not enough ripening of fruit to try it yet. We will see how Monday looks. I think by Tuesday we should be on track. We will just have to wait and see. I'll send out an email and post it on face book as well. 

  Thanks to so many of you who came by this week. It was good to have you. Some of you are such warm and grateful customers ( actually friends ). Both here at the farm and at the farmer's market in Myrtle Beach.
