Well, April means nasty weather here in Virginia (is this the new normal? or the old normal coming back?). Makes it difficult on anybody raising crops other than cows!
Spent the week cleaning up the fields. Spring weeding and pruning. Like last year we have had a battle with cane blight from last years excessive rain. Since this seems to be the new normal we are replanting some rows with a variety that seems more blight resistant (Natchez, great flavor and bigger than most). Some plants are looking good with lots of flower buds. I cant say its going to be a great year but we will have fruit. Likely going to be no sooner than July, we will have some late fruit too (fall).
Please support your local farm, please! We are trying to keep some old time traditions going for you and for us. We will be offering special pricing for larger amounts picked over the entire season.
We will have live Rainbow Trout available in May; $5/lb. netted live/fresh out of the stock tank. Very healthy eating!
Our Asparagus is doing well (Purple Passion). It will be available for purchase this time next year ( Oh! the waiting!)
We are going to try and have Corn available (sweet varieties) from a self serve honor system stand at our road (Toms, at 43 below the POO, just past Kelso Mill.
Thanks for following and supporting us!
