It got really quiet after supper so I popped my head out the door to see what was happening and this is what I found:
New farm clothes of choice include cute dresses and runners without socks
June has brought us some well timed rain. We went on a family farm tour last night on the golf cart. Here's what we found...
Blueberries are looking green but they are growing. We are looking forward to an early July start to picking season.
Garlic is looking great. We will be trimming scapes this weekend. If anyone wants some let me know.
Meet our family of geese. They look so sweet and innocent here. We weren't able to capture them hissing at us.
And our 2015 picking crew resting up for blueberry season.
That's right. Blueberry season is on its way! The berries are starting to form and we are aiming for the picking season to start around the first week or second week in July. We will keep updating our website or check us out on facebook. If you would like to pre-order already picked berries, just send me an email.
So our blueberry jam and honey are bottled and ready. We are very proud of our honey. You need to taste it to believe it! We loved the honey so much that we used it to sweeten our jam. This is not your grandma's jam. With only 40g of honey per jar the jam is sweet but not punch you in your face sweet :). Both jam and honey will be available at the farm this year.
On a personal note, we also added something to the farm. In March 2015 we welcomed another blueberry picker to the team: Calvin is baby #3 for us. He's been a great addition to the family.
