What we plan on picking today, Monday, September 15, 2014

Today may just turn out to be a fairly rainy day.  However, we are so close to the southern boundary of the rain showers that it might not rain all day here although it might rain most of the day north of White Cloud.  Of course this is just an estimate looking at the radar and things do change with time–even a few hours sometimes makes a big difference.  One important point here: it isn’t raining here at 8:30AM and our pickers are picking fast.  On other point.  The rest of the week looks real nice with most everyday except today having more sun than clouds along with mild September temperatures.

By the way, probably inspired by watching the eagle grabbing a pike, my son Matt went fishing last evening and caught a legal (25 inch, about 4 pound) northern pike.  He fillet it and it was absolutely delicious!

The sweet corn we will be picking today is bi-color Mirai and white Mirai.

Today we will also have for sale  Zestar, Earliblaze, Gravenstein, Wolf River and Summer Treat apples, green and yellow beans, acorn, buttercup, butternut, Heart-Of-Gold and spaghetti winter squash, sugar “pie” pumpkins, watermelon, muskmelon, zucchini and yellow summer squash, slicing cucumbers, sweet onions, SunSugar cherry tomatoes, canning and slicing tomatoes, Little Red Tomatoes, heirloom tomatoes, sweet green bell and Jalapeno peppers, yellow and orange Super-Sweet peppers, new red potatoes and Yukon Gold potatoes and our own popcorn on the ear.

The Eagle and Pike, also: What we plan on picking today, Friday, September 12, 2014

This morning Matt and I saw something interesting through our large dining room picture window.  It was a large Bald Eagle flying low over Pickerel Lake carrying a fish. The interesting thing was that the fish was a Northern Pike and looked larger than the eagle–the pike was over 2 feet long and weighed over 4 pounds (these are estimates, of course, but they are reliable estimates since we have seen many, many pike in this size range.)  Apparently, the eagle had too hard a time with the pike and we did see it finally drop the fish.

The sweet corn we will be picking today is bi-color Mirai and white Mirai.

Today we will also have for sale peaches, Zestar, Earliblaze, Gravenstein, Wolf River and Summer Treat apples, a new patch of green beans and starting a new patch of yellow beans, acorn, buttercup, butternut, Heart-Of-Gold and spaghetti winter squash, watermelon, muskmelon, zucchini and yellow summer squash, pickling and slicing cucumbers, Newaygo Sweet Onions, SunSugar cherry tomatoes, Canning and slicing tomatoes, Little Red Tomatoes, heirloom tomatoes, sweet green bell and Jalapeno peppers, yellow and orange Super-Sweet peppers, new red potatoes and new Yukon Gold potatoes!

UPDATE–WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 10
