|Purple raspberries develop a deep purple color when ripe, and many are ripe now and for the next 2 weeks.|
|Trent (in background) & Lindsey Kling picked one flat of red raspberries (front flat) and 3 flats of purple raspberries (back flat) this morning.|
Call 620-597-2450 a few days ahead if you want to pick thornless blackberries. Some are ripening now until about Aug. 8 or 10, but the heaviest harvest time will be about July 15 to 31.
As I reported in April, we have NO peach crop this year, since winter cold killed all the peach fruit buds.
|Sandhill plums make wonderful jams, jellies and sauces.|
