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.
