How many? Two.
There are only a few pick days left in our 2017 berry season, maybe two, maybe three. We are predicting two, but its really up to Mother Nature. Our next pick day is Thursday, June 29th Morning pick is 6AM-10AM and Evening pick is 5PM-9PM. Sunday, July 2nd will be the same hours.
There will be vegetables also available from Ron and Bonnie, who are managing the garden out front. They are calling it Ron and Bonnie’s Plot, and will have veggies for sale during our pick days and even after berry season is over. There will be a sign next to the garden that will say open or closed, since (with this weather) their hours are irregular. Stop by their table, next to the garden, and buy locally grown, healthy produce.
Thank you to all the beautiful people who came out last week to pick.(slideshow below) This has been the rainiest berry season we’ve ever had. The blueberries have produced so well this year, even with all the rain, that we really can’t believe it. They started early and are still ripening. We have several varieties that mature at slightly different times, so we’ve had lots of berries this entire month. The blackberries ripened very late for some unknown reason. They are on an opposite slope from the blueberries, so that may have something to do with it. Next will be honey season.
Here are some of the beautiful people who took the time to pick fresh healthy berries for friends, family and themselves.
