What we will be picking, today Tuesday, July 22, 2014

Today we will again be picking our first two patches of sweet corn and we will check out our third and fourth patches for ripeness.  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. Keep in mind we have planted a total of 40 patches this year!

New Today!  We will have sunflowers!

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

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 picked a couple Rich May peaches earlier in the week and found them quite tasty this year so right now we do on planning on selling them, perhaps on Thursday. The next peach to ripen after Rich May is the Flamin Fury PF1 peach, which in the past 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.

What we plan on picking today, Thursday July 17, 2014

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

Notice: While our plan has been to start to pick our first of 40 patches of sweet corn on Saturday, July 19, we checked the field and despite the cool weather this week there is a chance we will start picking the corn tomorrow.  If so, I will be posting tonight before 9PM that we are doing that. If you don’t see this post then assume we will start on Saturday after all.
