What we will be picking today, Tuesday July 29, 2014

Again we will have two varieties of sweet corn up for sale today: Fastlane, which has medium sized ears and Bon Appetit, which have quite large ears.  We will be selling this corn at different prices today.

We are now also picking peaches, green beans, yellow beans, beets, radishes, zucchini, yellow summer squash, slicing cucumbers, pickling cucumbers, dill, Newaygo Sweet Onions, SunSugar tomatoes, cut sunflowers, green peppers, new red potatoes and new Yukon Gold potatoes!

OUR PEACHES ARE NOW INCREASING IN SUPPLY!!

One of our favorite peaches, Flamin Fury PF1, is now ripe and we will have a good supply most of this week.  Because of our better supply, in addiiton to selling them in 1/4 pecks, we will be selling them in 1/2 pecks, which is about 6 pounds–which is enough for at least two pies or a whole bunch of peach shortcakes and/or dishes of peaches and cream!  While Flamin Fury PF1 is a clingstone, it is melting and delicious.

PICKLING CUCUMBER SPECIAL: 36 pickling cucumbers for $6

NEWAYGO ONIONS: 1/2 peck for $5

What we are picking today, Monday July 28, 2014

I am sorry that I missed Saturday’s blog post.

Something worrisome came up early and I had to take care of that first thing and I forgot all about the blog post.  That’s the bad news.  The good news was that it wasn’t as worrisome as it first seemed!

We will have two varieties of sweet corn up for sale today: Fastlane, which has medium sized ears and Bon Appetit, which have quite large ears.  We will be selling this corn at different prices today.

We are now also picking green beans, yellow beans, beets, radishes, zucchini, yellow summer squash, slicing cucumbers, pickling cucumbers, dill, Newaygo Sweet Onions, SunSugar tomatoes, cut sunflowers, green peppers, new red potatoes and new Yukon Gold potatoes!

EARLY PEACH UPDATE

We started picking our xtra-early peaches last week but we sold out Saturday of the peaches we picked.  While we will be picking more peaches today, we probably won’t have them out for sale until tomorrow.

PICKLING CUCUMBER SPECIAL: 36 pickling cucumbers for $6

What we will be picking today, Friday July 25, 2014

We are done picking our first two patches of sweet corn and will be picking our third through fifth patches.  Tomorrow we will also be picking our sixth patch.  The extra-early bi-color varieties in these first patches are smaller than the main crop varieties we will be selling for the rest of the season but they are sweet and quite tasty. The reason why the small size of the extra early corn this year is due to both genetics (extra early ripening) and weather conditions.  Believe it or not, it was the excessive rain in early May that has made our first corn smaller than usual.  The early flooding rain washed away many of the nutrients from the soil. However, the corn next week will be of good size, almost as large as normal since we planted it right after the flooding rains had finished. Also, the corn next week which includes Bon Appetit, has naturally larger ears.  Keep in mind we have planted a total of 40 patches this year and all our later planted corn is doing exceptionally well, although we will need rain shortly.

For Today: Magicland Corner Bakery will be selling Choc-OAT-let bars, Butterscotch Brownies, and Sugar Cookies!

We are now also picking green beans, yellow beans, beets, radishes, zucchini, yellow summer squash, slicing cucumbers, pickling cucumbers, dill,  Newaygo Sweet Onions, SunSugar tomatoes, cut sunflowers, new red potatoes and new Yukon Gold potatoes!

SUPER EARLY PEACH UPDATE

We have sold out of our first picking of the Rich May peach and will be picking the rest of our Rich May peaches late today.  We probably won’t have this picking out for sale today although we hope to have it out for sale tomorrow. The next peach to ripen after Rich May is the Flamin Fury PF1 peach, which in the past, has been one of our favorites.

What we will be picking today Thursday, July 24, 2014

Today we will be continuing to pick our first three patches of sweet corn and starting our fourth and fifth patches.  These extra-early bi-color varieties in these first patches are smaller than the main crop varieties we will be selling for the rest of the season but they are sweet and quite tasty. The reason why the small size of the extra early corn this year is due to both genetics (extra early ripening) and weather conditions.  Believe it or not, it was the excessive rain in early May that has made our first corn smaller than usual.  The early flooding rain washed away many of the nutrients from the soil.

SUPER EARLY PEACH UPDATE

I mentioned in an earlier post that last year our very first peach, Rich May, isn’t of the best quality so we didn’t sell it.  Well, we sampled this year’s Rich May and I think you will like them!  They are rather small though and we will be selling them in quarts today, Friday and Saturday. The next peach to ripen after Rich May is the Flamin Fury PF1 peach, which in the past, has been one of our favorites.

Sweet Corn Update–5:30PM 7/17/2014

We checked our first sweet corn patch and we found some ripe sweet corn.  However, we decided to wait until Saturday July 19 to start picking it for sale to make sure we will have enough corn for sale to last at least into the afternoon.
