|Duke Blueberries on June 1st|
We began picking the Duke variety of blueberries the first week of June. It is a mellow flavored blueberry that isn't too sour and isn't too strong in flavor. It's really fun to pick the first crop off the bush. They seem to just fall in quickly and it makes for a good evening to fill the bucket as the sun goes down in the evening.
|Nova Raspberries on June1st|
The Nova raspberries are pictured to the right. We started picking them in late May and they will probably finish their season by the last week of June. We also have a red variety that is called Reveille that is sweet and slightly more fragile than the Nova. Les' favorite raspberry, though, is the Royalty and are purple when ripe. We also have a berry called a Wye Berry that is a cross between a blackberry and a raspberry. They're burgundy when ripe and taste a bit like like a Dr Pepper in their scale of sweetness.
If you get a chance, come see the farm on Tuesday, Thursday or Saturday. We're planning to be open from 7 a.m. - 2 p.m. See you soon!
