Wow. This whirlwind of a season has just two weeks left. Can you believe it?
Remember how cold and wet it was in April and May?
Seems like a lifetime ago.
OK, enough about old times. Here is what is happening now. We are picking lots of peppers. Make your relish and stuffed peppers now!
It looks like the last couple of peach varieties survived the spring frost pretty well, so we should have plenty to get us through Labor Day.
We are still picking cantaloupes. They are big AND delicious!
Of course, the corn is coming in strong like it has all summer.
And the newest addition to the market. Kettle Corn!
I just ate half of a bag. That’s not a good idea… You should share.
So, remember! Labor Day is our last day for the season. We will be open regular hours until then. Make sure you stop in and stock up on everything for the winter!
Get a couple of boxes of canning tomatoes.
Cut some flowers to brighten up the kitchen.
Have a slushie float to finish the season in style. Peach or cantaloupe – you decide.
The great Sudlersville Peach Festival is tomorrow, August 6th, 1-5pm. Today, we will be baking in the kitchen, mowing and weed whacking in the yard, scrubbing the floors, gathering peaches, setting up tents and moonbounces, and priming the pump on the kettle corn machine!
Tomorrow we will be the eating, drinking and listening to fine music. The kids will be petting the bunnies, jumping in the moonbounces, playing games, and riding in the barrel carts and on the fire truck. Please join us.

The kids from the quilting camp stopped by to show us their BEAUTIFUL quilts! Check out this talent!!! It’s no suprise they are so good, their teachers were the Foxxi Lady Quilters of the Sudlersville Senior Center. We grabbed this photo while the students were admiring their mentors’ work.
Remember the quilt the Foxxi Ladies made for us last year?
We have fresh local milk now! Believe me, if you try the chocolate milk you won’t go back to the grocery store chocolate milk. It is delicious! Not too sweet, it’s just right. And the yogurt…. To die for….
Tons of corn has been flowing through the barn the last few days. Stop in and get some anytime. Bushels available!
Cut your own flowers is open. It’s a great opportunity to brighten up your house on a muggy mid-summer day.
Pick your own blueberry update – This week is the last opportunity to pick at Benton Corner Road. Give us a call soon and we will set you up to pick there. Otherwise, mark your calendar for Saturday, July 23, 7am. We will pick the late varieties at Leager Road until noon then. Check the website or call before you come. I might have to push the date back if they still aren’t ready when Saturday rolls around.
We picked a few tomatoes. It’s just a matter of time before we have tons of them. I can’t wait!
|So sorry about the focus error.
My kids were at piano camp last week. They had a concert yesterday to show off their talent. Oh my! What an incredible group of kids. Amazing!!!! Here’s Jane and Emily with a few of their friends.
P.S. Don’t forget the peach festival!!!
Tom just picked the first 200 ears of corn. If you want one, come to the Sudlersville Fireman’s Parade, we will be passing them out on the way to the carnival tonight!
Here’s the plan – you get up early in the morning to beat the heat. Go to the blueberry field on Benton Corner Road (130 Blueberry Lane) and pick blueberries. Then head straight to the market for fresh picked sweet corn, a strawberry slushie, and an ice cream cone.
Thank you for joining us for Bluegrass in the Blueberry Patch. It turned out to be such a great day, and I’m so glad you were able to be here. We took a few pictures to share.
But first, a little business… If you would like to pick more blueberries, come on out. We will be picking all weekend. We are at the Leager Road field Saturday morning, July 2, 7am – noon, then at the Benton Corner Road field on Monday, July 4th, 7am-noon. Any other time during the weekend, afternoons and Sunday all day we will be picking behind the market. Check the website for maps and more information on the fields.
Of course, we have pre-picked blueberries available in the market along with strawberry and cantaloupe slushies. We will have local sweet corn this weekend. Our corn should be ready next weekend.
So, here are the pictures. If you have any, please share on our Facebook page. We would love to see them! And of course we would love to see you again soon!
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!
