Watermelons and tomatoes continue to bring smiles and slivers of joy to the summer.
We have some peas and beans. Speckled butter beans continue to make themselves unknown everywhere. In fact half runners , speckled butter beans are almost nowhere to be found. We are currently planting both of these varieties and other varieties for a fall crop. We will see how this works.
As that matures we can look forward to grapes coning soon , a few pawpaws should be available this year. How they escaped the March freeze still amazes me. savor the summer and enjoy every good gift God gives us.

The blueberry field will be open Wednesday morning 8 to 10:30. The next picking date may be Saturday if the field is ready.  

  The peaches are continuing to be some of the best anywhere around. I am surprised that they are this good with the kind of late winter weather we had.

   Lovers of Heirloom tomatoes your season is fast coming upon us. We are beginning to pick an increasing amount of heirlooms, German Johnson, Cherokee Purple , Mr. Stripey, Mortgage Lifter and more. We also have a variety of small tomatoes, cherry, grape, in various colors.

   Organic wise we have interesting varieties of potatoes, carrots, organic tomatoes, Asian eggplant, beginning soon cantaloupes and watermelons.    .  Don’t forget the colorful zinnias and fragrant basil.

                

 It is never too early to get honey. We have a good supply now where you can get honey straight from the farm.

  I apologize for not getting this email out sooner. The blueberry field will be open Sat. 8 to 10:30 in the morning. The picking is not as plentiful so take time to go the right places.

Happy Fourth of July

  We are heading into the fourth of July holiday time! For many it means family gatherings or getting together with friends and yes maybe seeing some fireworks.  Hopefully we can revisit some of what it took to have freedom and independence.

   The blueberry fields will be open Monday, 8 to 10:30. I anticipate having the fields open several days this week and especially on Saturday morning. So please stay informed via website or by calling 843-399-6902 or 910 287-9467.

    Watermelons, corn, tomatoes are looking good and taste even better! If you have a reason for making the 4th have a flair I recommend trying a red white and blue potato salad. We should have the potatoes for that! It is a good thing to do to create fun and memories with kids and grandkids as they can reflect on the meaning of this holiday.

             

                  A good watermelon has to have a good HEART !

 The blueberry fields will be open Wednesday morning 8 to 10. We are getting some very nice corn right now. The watermelons have been good and the peaches have been excellent. They are semi-free and delicious. Blackberries, tomatoes and more are available.

 The blueberry field will be open from 8 am to 9 am Saturday. This is the first day of PYO. We need to keep it short i order to not over pick. The price is 2.50/pound.

  We are picking blueberries for the market. PYO will be most likely closer to mid June which is the normal time for opening the fields. The berries are very nice but due to the late March freeze we lost a lot of the early fruit. The later varieties look good.

  At the markets ( here at the farm and Myrtle's market on Joe White Ave. ) we have very good yellow squash, different types of zucchini, lots of pickling cucumbers, beans ( string, October beans, burgundy beans ), cabbage, radishes, kale, chard, turnips ( purple top and white). We are picking some blackberries but they are going extremely fast.

   We are bringing in good watermelons, corn, tomatoes and peaches. The peach crop was severely damaged by the late March freeze so we are glad to have peaches of this quality. They are cling but with excellent flavor.

  We have HONEY from the farm as well as our backup source. the honey flow was shorter than anticipated this year so again we are thankful to have a good supply of honey.
