Now Picking — Peaches, Apples, Tomatoes, Peppers, Eggplant, Raspberries and More.

THE MOST AMAZING FAMILY came to the farm this week:  four persons in all, and each one picked 2 PECKS of vegetables.  More fiber than a freighter full of Twinkies.  Go, kids!

August brings the first true sense of bounty.  Tomatoes start to really turn, and we are swimming in vegetables.

By the way, do you work with someone prickly?  If you say the wrong thing, do you get an ouchy that makes you cry inside?

Remember, they have an inner life, too, and it might be tender and smoky like farm-fresh eggplant.  Get to know them.

We have an apple emergency.  The dogs can sense it.  They get all twitchy like before a hurricane.

The Yellow Transparent variety, first apples of the year, are DROPPING.  We absolutely need you pick some!

They are light and crisp summer apples.  Awesome for saucing.  “Put some up” now to get a head start.

Kids love them.  In child psychology, this phenomenon is known as NOM-NOM-NOM.  See the trance-like state.

The moment you have all been waiting for is kinda sorta here.  Peach picking has begun in multiple rows.

Some farms have no peaches this year.  We have peaches.  Remember how precious they are.  Take our tutorial flyer.

These savvy pickers—Chantelle, Rosie, and David—made a midweek sally to the plums.  There are only a few trees; nice haul.

Raspberries continue to impress.  The little first-year field gets pickers daily.  Embarrasingly big berries in some rows.

The thrilling conclusion to last week’s Stumphenge mystery will have to wait.  The thrill and the conclusion are not ready.

Cukes are picked out. But you can get product placement in our newsletter for $325,000/issue.  That’s what Kaley Cuoco makes for each episode of her sitcom.  And she’s on strike.

This week’s cover model appears without airbrushing.  At the farm, you can always “come as you are.”  So, get out here.  Summer is short as a mofo.  Hope to see you at The ‘Creek.
