|Our highway sign for peaches is now up, and pick-your-own blackberry harvest continues.|
|Each of these boxes holds 20 lbs. of peaches, picked today. 'Nectar' white peaches (front box) and 'Intrepid' & 'Challenger' yellow peaches (other boxes) taste great, and I give taste samples.|
Many nice large blackberries are still ripening. Sandhill plums have also started ripening. Sandhill plums are native to the sandy soils of central Kansas and central Oklahoma, where we selected superior fruit, grew the seeds into plants, and transplanted the seedlings to our farm. Sandhill plums are too small and tart for fresh eating, but make wonderful jam, jelly and sauce with a hint of apricot flavor.
We're open our regular summer hours on July 4th. Berries and sandhill plums are sold pick-your-own. We're open for picking, as the sidebar at left says, Mon. to Sat. 7:30 a.m. to 12 noon and 7-9 p.m., and Sun. 7-9 p.m. only. We pick all the peaches, and have them for sale during those hours.
|We now have a sign on our sales building with our summer hours. We've had these same summer hours for the 12 years we've been in business. We are open these hours on July 4th.|
