Another Year Closes

The end of another growing season leaves us with mixed emotions.  This year's heat gave us many growing disappointments, but also produced this large, lovely pumpkin.  Many thanks to all my loyal customers who come great distances just to find the perfect pumpkin!  Among our woes this year were the raspberries which didn't like the constant intense heat and so shut down early in August.  Four rows of corn, a row of sunflowers, a row of butternuts and most of our watermelons and many planted pumpkins were delicious meals for the wildlife.  Ah, alas, but next year it begins again.... well, if I muster up the courage.

PUMPKINS -  It's THAT time of year again!  We began selling pumpkins last weekend.  We don't have as many as we have had in past years.... so first come, first serve!  The raspberries shut down in mid August because of the unrelenting and intense heat of July.  Sorry there are none to pick 😒.  We also have NO apples this year.... another 😞.  But the weather has been beautiful and will be great this weekend (September 30 and October 1).  I DO have lavender bunches and lavender oil.... 😊  Hope to see you soon!   💓💛💜

Lavender and Raspberries

Lavender and Raspberries

Lavender Harvest:  July 1 - 9 we will be harvesting lavender.  Fresh lavender will be available during that time.  Dried lavender bunches will be available after that and all year. 
Raspberries:  Raspberries are beginning to show a blush of red in the bushes so there are berries to pick but not plentiful yet.  Still hunting for berries is rewarding.
If you have any questions, call me (Margaret) at 661.444.0835.

Status of Raspberries

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 afternoon.

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.
