Hello, just wanted to remind you that this is the last weekend for u-pick peaches. If you want to pick, you must come tomorrow between 8am and 1pm, or else wait for next year. Of course, we will have plenty of peaches here at the market for you through Labor Day.
The last day of the season for the market is Labor Day. So, make sure you get out here between now and then to stock up on all of the fresh produce you need to get through the long, cold winter months. We will have normal hours through Monday, September 1st: 7am-6pm Monday thru Friday and 7am-5pm Saturday and Sunday. Then, beginningTuesday, we will be closed until asparagus starts again in mid-April.
Did you make it out to the Peach Festival? If you did, I hope you had a good time. If you didn’t, I hope you can make it next year. Yes, there will be a 2nd annual Peach Festival – August 8th, 2015. Mark your calendar!
Here is a picture taken in the market that day. The weather was great, the bands were terrific, and the crowd was breath-taking. We will be sure to have more help and more peach ice cream next year.
I took this picture the next morning. Everything was so serene after the craziness of the previous day. That’s the moon you see. It was huge and wildly bright. I heard later that it was a super moon, and I think that was a good description of it – super.
Here’s a sunrise picture:
Then of course the sun also sets here at Godfrey’s:
Remember, the pile of tomatoes we had during the peach festival?
It’s not quite so big anymore:
Don’t worry, we still have plenty for you to do your canning, sauces, salsa, etc.
We picked beans just in case you want some.
Jane still loves to eat them fresh from the field:
Here is a picture from 2008. Aww, to be six again.
If I don’t see you before closing day, have a safe and healthy winter, and I will look for you in April.
I will sign off with a few more peach festival pictures. When we decided to do this festival with the Sudlersville Volunteer Fire Company, our common goal was to get the local community together to celebrate family and friends, and to have fun. I think we accomplished our goal:
