Friday, July 24, 2015: A Look ahead of what we will start picking in the next few weeks…

We have had numerous questions about how our other fruit and vegetables are doing and when we will start picking them.  Well, despite the fact we’ve been picking our SunSugar tomatoes for over a week, they have been in such a short supply they aren’t on the stand for very long.  Next week our supply should rapidly increase so by the end of next week we should have them all day. One of the problems with the SunSugar has to do with the fact we grow most in high-tunnels and neglected to open the sides for a few days and it got so hot some of the blossoms were killed although the plants grew tremendously.  Our “Little Red” tomatoes will be starting next week and our large slicers the end of next week hopefully if weather stays warm. Our large variety of heirloom tomatoes (over 12 varieties this year!!) and Roma types are also doing well.  Peppers should start tomorrow and eggplant in another week.  We will also be picking pretty soon more of our summer apples. We have begun to pick our Qunte apples this past Monday, but more apples like our Vista Bella, Melba, Viking etc. are coming along fast!  Our sweet and juicy yellow plums (which we have a good crop of this year) will start next week (Santa Rosa and Burbank plums are later).  Our muskmelon and watermelon look like they will need 2 more weeks as will our Acorn and Spaghetti Squash.  And one last thing for all those sweet corn lovers: look for our famous super sweet Mirai sweet corn in two weeks!

There is more and keep in mind I haven’t yet mentioned our fall crop which includes pumpkins of all types, butternut and buttercup squash, Rutabaga (for Ron :) ), pears which includs the Asian type, and many different fall and winter apples and the list goes on and on…
