We're Pickin' Corn!

Yesterday we picked the first corn of the season. Yum, yum, yum!
It's bi-color and it is very sweet, crisp and delicious. We pick it everyday, as many times a day as we need to. For your eatin' pleasure!

CORN COOKING TIP: Drop corn into boiling water and cook for 1 minute ONLY! It will be perfect, I promise. 

All our delicious refrigerated items are in. Fresh mozzarella cheese, pies baked daily, goat cheese logs, Imported Italian Olive Oil. LeBus Bakery breads.

Happy Summer Solstice!

The longest day of the year is upon us and we have been taking advantage of the light. Our fields have never looked better. With the temperatures soaring, all our crops are maturing like mad. We have the first corn that should be ready to be picked by weeks end and eggplants are 6 inches long. Tomatoes are getting big quick and our squash, cucumbers and peas are cranking out already. Zinnias are just starting to be ready but with this heat, everyday they are blooming more and more. Beans will be picked in the next day or two.

It is hot and dry, which is the PERFECT climate for growing food. We are set up with drip irrigation on all our crops, so although it is dusty out in our fields, the plants are as happy as pigs in mud!!

Heirloom tomatoes staked-up and lookin' pretty!

Gorgeous eggplant are knee high.

Lots to offer at our Farm Stand this week. We have our own squash, cucumbers, garlic, garlic scapes, raspberries, lettuce, salad mix, beets, carrots, spring onions, peas, beans; Jersey corn, blueberries, Lancaster tomatoes, sweet onions, Southern peaches, georgia cantaloupe and much more!
