It being the last day of summer and a lot of rain to boot, it is a good day to call it a wrap on the strawberry season. It was a wonderful berry season and we thank you whole-heartily for making it so. Your dedication to making the extra effort to pick local, fresh fruit in season and bringing with you buckets and smiles and cash(!), makes this all possible. We are ever grateful. It is a blessing to grow food and be keepers of the soil but truly, the best part of the job is connecting with wonderful people all summer long. There a plenty of tasks in the rows in the off-season but it's dull when not alive with the activity of berry pickers.
Soon we will be heading out to the pumpkin patch to harvest pumpkins and squash. I will be posting soon about that. They are sold from a wagon at the end of the driveway.
We hope you have a lovely fall, winter and spring enjoying the frozen fruits of your labour. Moreover, we hope we see many of you out here for pumpkins, squash, frozen roasting chickens and eggs.
