(Don't wait to call until you're on your way here, or I probably won't get your message before you arrive here. When I'm out pruning, as I will be each non-rainy day for the next month, I can't always see or hear vehicles come in if I'm not looking for you.)
You can make an appointment, through May 31, for between 9:00 and 11:45 a.m. or between 1:00 and 5:15 p.m. Mon. to Sat., and between 1:15 and 5:15 p.m. Sundays. We're closed every Sunday morning, year-round, for church.
Asparagus harvest is going strong, and we have lots for sale now and for the next 4 to 5 weeks, until early to mid-June. Asparagus is sold harvested, still for $2.78 per pound + tax, and you do need to phone 620-597-2450 a day ahead and order it.
|This 'Enterprise' apple tree still has some blooms, and the young apples that have set are now the size of my thumbnail. These apples will ripen in Oct. and Nov., but we still have many apples, harvested last Nov., for sale now.|
We're still selling our last and largest pecan variety, 'Pawnee'. We sell our papershell pecans in 4-pound bags. These pecan bags contain at least 75% pecan kernels, so you get the equivalent of at least 6 pounds of in-shell pecans in each bag. These pecans are very fast and easy for customers to pick out, and when you pick out the pecans, you get over 3 pounds of nutmeats. We still have enough pecans for about 130 bags, and we'll have cracked pecans for sale until we sell out, probably till mid- to late June.
