Blueberries & Tart Cherries

My how time flies…

It seems like just a couple of weeks ago when I took this picture…


But, that can’t be right, I took this one a couple of weeks ago…

I guess the clock isn’t going to slow down – I just need to hang on for the crazy ride.

 

 

Strawberries

The strawberry season is winding down. We should have a few quarts available at the market tomorrow, maybe Wednesday, but that’s pretty much it.

Here’s a recap of the season –

We had lots of fun with strawberry school tours.

It’s too bad Home School Day was cool and rainy. I believe the great folks who weathered the storm and joined us had a pretty good time. I know I did!

 

Tart cherries

We will open for picking tart cherries starting Thursday at 7am. You may pick anytime during regular business hours: Mon-Fri 7am-6pm, and Sat-Sun 7am-5pm. The season will last until the cherries are all gone.

 

Asparagus

Oh yea, almost forgot asparagus.

There’s only a couple of weeks left.

Here’s some of our packing crew along with some visitors to the farm. These great kids help after school and weekends to get our asparagus to the big city. See those little cuties in front? Their mom works at Clyde’s Restaurants in Washington DC, which just happens to be where this skid of asparagus is going.

Blueberries

Blueberry picking will start Friday. We will be at the Benton Corner Road farm on Friday, June 9, 7am-noon and then again Saturday 7am-noon.

Check the Pick-your-own Blueberry page on the website for an explanation of the blueberry picking schedule including updates. We will post picking locations on Facebook, or you can give us a call – the answering machine should also give the latest information.

 

Kettle Corn

Ashley’s getting pretty good at running the kettle corn popper without getting 3rd degree burns. It’s quite a talent.

So, be sure to stop by, let her know how great she looks in her uniform and take a bag of kettle corn home. Maybe you should get two, you will be amazed at how much you can eat on your drive.
