July 23 Peaches!

July 23 Peaches!

Hello!  We’ve entered peach season!!  Peaches will be on the stands most days from now till the end of summer.  

New potatoes, peppers, and onions have started, and garlic will be up in the next week- it is curing now.  We’ll put up nectarines off and on as the trees ripen.  Tomatoes are close- very close.  We’ll have the old fashioned Jersey favorite, “Moreton,” on the stand probably in the next week or so, as well as yellow cherry tomatoes.  Many more varieties to follow…

Pick your own raspberries and blackberries is now open at the Croton Road farm.  

A few blackberries- these are the ones Kayleen used in her peach-blackberry tart

Pint baskets and instructions are available at the stand- this is self serve.  

Notes from around the farm: The strawberries for next year have started to run- this is great!  The obscenely heavy rain in the last week has been washing away soil between the rows, so we are anxious to have them fill in.  The pie pumpkins and winter squash have germinated and are growing well with this rain.  The cantaloupe are looking good- U keep checking to see if they are ready.  Eggplant look like they can be picked soon too- the summer bounty has arrived!

 

Cherry Season!

These are not open for pick your own,  the experiment was a success and now I have planted cherry trees for upick, probably ready to harvest in 2019, on both farms.  (more…)
