STRAWBERRIES: May 10, 2013: the fields are now all uncovered and we are waiting for real growth to begin. Because of the late Spring we expect a later beginning to our season, perhaps the third week of June. Please note this change for returning customers: our picking hours will be different this year, and Pick Your Own will begin at 8:00 AM. Please check back for more updates. Maybe normal temperatures and rainfall will be in our favor this year.
The blueberry fruit buds have started to swell, and it appears that the plants made it through the Winter just fine. We anticipate the opening of that picking season around the second week of July. Of course, you will want to check back at our website for updates on the blueberry crop.
SWEET CORN: We are waiting for the soil temperatures to warm before we can plant sweet corn. Our varieties are very particular about growing conditions, but rest assured, we will be growing corn for you in 2013, Right now, it is a guess to say that the corn will be ripe around the end of July. Check back later.
