Happy Father’s Day!
U-pick tart cherries will open tomorrow, Saturday, June 15th. Just in time to make a cherry pie for Dad.
U-pick blueberries will open Monday at the Benton Corner Road farm, 7am – noon. We will use the same picking schedule as last year: Mon, Wed, Fri, and Sat 7am-noon and Wed 4pm-6pm.
There are 2 picking locations. We will start at the Benton Corner Road farm for the early season berries and then move to Leager Road (main market) for mid-season, then maybe back to Benton Corner Road, and end up at Leager Road for the late season. Sometimes, the blueberry patch gets picked out and we have to wait for more to ripen. So, you will want to check on the website or look for a Facebook update after each picking to find out where and when the next picking is.
Look what local goodies we have for the weekend!
|Beets, cabbage, broccoli and cauliflower.|
|Collards, kale, lettuce and radishes|
|Local yogurt and Godfrey’s blueberries.|
Guess what?! We have fresh fruit slushies. They are delicious! Today we are serving strawberry and lemonade, made with real strawberries and lemons of course. Try them mixed – it’s great! Be sure to scroll all the way to the bottom of this email for your coupon.
I hope you didn’t get too much damage from the storms yesterday.
Here is the afternoon episode.
And here, what I will call “Part 1: The morning”.
The morning doesn’t look as vicious as the afternoon in these pictures, but I was afraid to go out back and take a picture in the morning. Actually, they were both scary, with lots of lightening.
Don’t ask why I showed “Part 2: The afternoon” first. I really should have done it in chronological order. I guess I just used the “most recently remembered” method instead. Or maybe it was the “closest lightening strike” method.
