Updated: May 2016 Our corn is planted and some of the first rows are up and growing. It was a slow start with all the frost nights in mid May. We should be able to harvest the first planting in late July. Please check back.
Our Blueberry crop forecast looks very promising for 2016. The bushes were loaded with blossoms and we managed to protect them from a severe freeze on May 15th. You can expect to have blueberries for picking shortly after the end of the strawberry season, about the second week of July. That season lasts about three weeks.

We now have a few berries starting to form, and are still in full bloom. We had 6 consecutive nights of frost in mid May, and now lots of rain. Since berries are mostly water, that is a good thing. You can check back at this produce update in the middle of June and we will be better able to predict the start of the picking season.
