In honor of Clint Eastwood, I will organize this week’s email around Tom’s favorite movie.
Let’s start with “The Good” –
Blueberries are ready to pick. We will open on Friday, June 17th at the farm on Benton Corner Road. Picking hours are 7am-noon. We will also pick 7am-noon, at the Benton Corner Road farm Saturday, June 18th. Check the website or call for future picking times and locations.
We have pre-picked blueberries available in the market now.
Now for “The Bad and The Ugly” –
The tart cherry trees were hit hard by the spring frosts. We won’t be able to do pick-your-own this season. There are very few cherries, and most of them are higher up in the trees. So, we will send in our crew to scrounge up all of the ripe fruit later this week, then again next week. If you are interested in having some of the pre-picked cherries, let us know and we will put you on our list, and let you know when they are ready.
I’m sorry for the bad news, but these things happen, and we will try to make the best of it. I hope you understand.
Strawberries – The strawberries are all finished up. You are welcome to browse through the field to see what’s left in u-pick, but do it soon, because they aren’t going to be around much longer.
The weather has been good for the asparagus, we should have it for at least another week.
I will now interupt this e-newsletter with a picture of my kids. Jane had a violin concert on Saturday, and Emily, her trendy sister, was there to cheer her on.
She’s also playing in the orchestra in “The Fiddler on the Roof” which is now showing at Church Hill Theatre. It’s a great show! Make sure you go see it – and say hi to Jane at intermission.
I really hope you are able to join us for this one. I love a Sunday afternoon, relaxing in the shade and listening to good music. You can pick a few blueberries, the kids can jump in the moonbounce and everyone can enjoy blueberry pie with a big scoop of ice cream. Great news – the band performing this year is Scotty MacGlashan & True Blue!
Don’t forget the Peach Festival, with the Sudlersville Fire Company dishing up great pit beef and ham. The Alligators and the Roadhouse Clams will be here again this year, playing great music. I just can’t wait!
Here are a couple of great strawberry patch pictures shared on Facebook by one of our wonderful customers. Be sure to share you photos too!
