The berries are still a lot smaller than they were two weeks
ago, but there are berries out there to pick.
My nieces picked two boxes in a short amount of time yesterday
So the berries are in a lull right now. We will continue to have berries…. because we
have always had, berries through October.
It is just that weather, conditions and amount of people picking (or not
picking) will result in a fluctuation of production.
We currently also have a ton of tomatoes at the store front and we always have lavender bunches. Later we should have squashes and corn and perhaps green beans. Near the end of September we will also have apples after two years of no apples and at the same time we will have pumpkins.
Mid-July brings us Raspberries and Lavender at Dries Farms. This marks the beginning of the "harvest" which will last through October. We began picking raspberries 3 weeks ago and the raspberries are crying out..... WE NEED YOU!! These lovely berries only stay around as long as they get picked everyday. The best times to pick are early in the morning and late afternoon in order to miss the blazing sun... wear sturdy shoes and a hat.
The Lavender is beautiful this year and is available now and throughout the year.
Beginning Saturday September 19, we will be selling pumpkins. They won't last long because as the crop was like everything else this year..... a disappointment. Except the raspberries are still producing berries which is a good thing. See you at the farm!
