It's time to say good-bye to another strawberry season. We're so thankful to everyone who came to our farm this season to pick your berries. Thank you for supporting a local business in your community, we would not be able to do this work without your support.
We had the best season we have ever seen for strawberries. They were plentiful, beautiful and oh so delicious. The Strawberry Festival was a smashing success, we had so many great activities for everyone to enjoy. Although they were calling for thundershowers, the rain held off and all the activities went on as planned.
We're sad to see the season come to an end but there is so much other produce to look forward to!
Raspberries and blueberries are now in full swing and corn is just around the corner! All our crops are doing really well but we sure could use a little more rain. Guess we got it all in
the spring, the clouds must be tapped out!
The weeds are keeping us busy in the fields, we have to control them before they take over. We're still weeding the old fashion way, completely by hand.
Carrots are ready as well, we're busy picking those, CSA members you will be seeing orange in your box this week.
