Update on the Farm

It is CRAZY here–everything is ripe and ready!

CANNING TOMATOES–We have started picking the tomatoes for the canners. Working on the regulars and will pick the paste next week. Cost is $42 for 40#’s. Orders are filled on a first come basis, starting with the people that ordered in the spring. We should have enough tomatoes to fill other orders.

OLD FASHIONED APPLES–I have 50 pounds left and will have them available in 10# bags for sale at Pick Up Days this week. I’ve dropped the price to $16.50–we need the cooler space for the Fruit Run this weekend! Great applesauce, but I’m impressed with the Apple Crisps I’ve made!

CANTALOUPE AND WATERMELONS ARE READY–as the Thursday/Friday people know, and now the Tuesday members: Cantaloupe and Watermelons are ripe and ready and Man OH Man are they good. Vine-ripened and firm-meated. Each Share Member will get a generous amount, but we will have extras for sale during pick ups starting next week! Cost is 75 cents/lb. for the Cantaloupe and 50 cents/lb. for the Seeded Watermelons, $3-$5 for the Seedless Mini’s, depending on size. If you are interested in selling them for us at Farmer’s Market, give me a hollar!


PEACHES, PEARS, and Tart CHerries

The TRUCK is coming out of UTAH. They make their trek every year at this time. If we can combine our order to meet their minimum order they will eliminate an additional freight charge.

I’m ordering Peaches (Elegant Lady, Summer Lady, O Henry, or Angelus), Red Bartlett Pears (Jumbo or Large), and Tart Cherries. I’m considering 15 boxes of Peaches, 10 boxes of Pears, and 6 Tart Cherries. I will charge you what it costs me–

Peaches are $28.50 for 32#,
Pears are $27.50 for the Jumbo, and $29.50 for the Large–both weigh 38#,
Tart Cherries are $35 for the Sugared, and $37 for the non-sugared–weigh 30#.

Specify what variety of peaches you want, whether you want Jumbo or Large pears, and sugared or non-sugared cherries. The orchard will attempt to deliver what you ask for but will fill the order based on availability. The fruit has been great in the past–substitutions have not been an issue. This is the only load that will have peaches–The truck usually makes a second trip later in the month.
