Happy Father’s Day!
I just wanted to wish you a Happy Father’s Day and give you a quick crop update.
We will start the u-pick tart cherries Thursday, June 19th. U-pick hours for tart cherries are during regular market hours: Mon-Fri 7am-6pm and Sat-Sun 7am-5pm.
The blueberries still aren’t quite ready yet, but it shouldn’t be too much longer. Check the website for the latest info.
We will quit cutting asparagus within the next couple of days, but it should be available at the market through the week.
Stop by and visit us. There is a lot of local stuff, some delicious cantaloupes from down south and, of course, ice cream and slushies.
Psst: There is one more coconut cream pie in the refrigerator this morning. Your dad called and said he REALLY wants it!
Hello! I guess I will start with a storm picture from the yard.
Not all of our tractors are green… But MOST of them are. I know you were wondering. I mean, the color of your tractors says a lot about a person. Don’t you think so?
The spring season is moving on quickly. I would guess there isn’t much time left for asparagus and strawberries. Probably next weekend will come close to finishing off this season.
The blueberries are just barely starting to turn blue. So, I would guess they are about 10 days or 2 weeks away. Maybe-ish? I will keep you posted.
Tart cherries are starting to color a little. At least a week away. I will keep you posted on that too.
We have had so much fun with strawberry pickers. Although I haven’t had a chance to take many pictures lately, plenty of others have contributed to the Godfrey photo album… Social media is absolutely wonderful.
These are from the Barrow Family blog post: Matters of Family Strawberry Picking
This is one of my favorites… It’s so sweet.
Still a few more…
I LOVE your hat!!! The smile isn’t too shabby either.
Here’s Patricia and her dad. There’s nobody nicer!
Recognize anyone in this picture?
Here’s a tip. When you come out to pick, don’t forget your sunglasses.
Another tip. You will need ice cream to replenish the energy used in the field. Even super heroes need a little ice cream now and then. It helps them fly.
It’s time! Asparagus is ready!!!! (Do you have any idea how much I have been wanting to say that?)
We have been cutting a little. We used the stand-in crew to start. Well, actually, these folks just cut enough for dinner.
Have you found the clock yet? No? Keep looking. The Bolga Basket winner is David Lawton. Congratulations David!
Tart Cherry Update
We planted some new tart cherry trees. Now we just have to wait 3 years for them to grow up and become productive members of society.
Oh yeah, did you know it’s Arbor Day today? Happy Arbor Day!
Hope to see you soon!
P.S. Lapp’s baked goods will arrive around 2pm today!
The question that begs to be answered… When will the asparagus be ready?
Well, I’m not sure. Maybe this weekend. I think the weather is supposed to cool off a little this week, so that might slow it down some. But boy oh boy, I sure would like to have some asparagus for Easter Sunday. Wouldn’t you?
So, here is the plan: we are going to be open and ready for business starting this Friday. I don’t know if we will have asparagus or not, but stop by, say hello, and either join us in a “bring on the asparagus dance”, or Lord willing and the creek don’t rise, get some asparagus! We will have some other goodies to make your Easter dinner special either way.
The peach trees are blooming. We saw the first ones pop out Friday (April 11).
They remind me of popcorn. You wait and wait and wait. Then, POP, there goes one. Then POP, another. Then it’s pandemonium! Pop, pop, pop, pop, they’re everywhere! In no time, they look like this.
Well, that was last year’s picture. But, they will look like this before you know it.
One more thing. When you come in, if you can say where the clock picture was taken, we will enter your name into a drawing to win the bolga basket of your choice. Limit one entry per customer.
Easter is Sunday. Will the asparagus be ready in time? Stay tuned… I will keep you posted.
Hope to see you soon!
