The farm stand is closed for the moment. We are picking the black raspberries, but they will all go into jam. I've decided we need more sour cherries. Gary will order the trees this week and we'll plant them this fall or next spring. Many people wanted sour cherries for their pies or to freeze- who would have thought that would be a hot item? I definately don't want to plant more sweet cherries, what a bother they are. I think we could do PYO pie cherries right after strawberries and everyone would be happy. They hardly have any bird damage and the rain only squished them a little. More to follow on that...
I once again tied up the blackberries and black raspberry bushes, they are growing like crazy! Obviously the rain is good for something. The early peaches are starting to color up and Gary thinks 10 days to 2 weeks, which is what I put on the sign out front. So we're good.
Have a happy 4th of July, we're planning to listen to the Riverside Symphonia at Tinicum. It's been a while since we were there but it's always amazing.
