TAKE A SPIN through this week’s crop catalog, including stuff you can pick and goodies you’ll find at the stand.
Nobody has ever thrown a party for the start of Yellow Transparent Apple season. Maybe you could make these tart little fellows feel appreciated with a hoot or holler. They are your earliest option for homebaked pies and sauces.
Farmer Allie, not to be confused with Farmer Alice, says we have a “kickass” herb garden this year. Pick your own basil, parsley, oregano, sage, dill, and mint. And try the NEW PESTO SPECIAL: A bag of garlic SCAPES (normally $4) plus a bundle of BASIL (normally $1-2) for only $4! Kinda like free basil.
Now don’t start flipping parked cars and toppling statues in celebration, but peach picking season will begin SUNDAY. MODESTLY. It’s a soft launch, not the initial public offering. We got 1 row ready to go, and honestly these specimens haven’t sugared up that well. But they are perfect peaches for pies and jams—and you can pick them! Please stop at the stand before you go picking. We’ll give you a map, a box, and the spiel, including our “How to Pick a Peach” tutorial which you must read aloud to your rugrats before ripping into the poor little orchard.
Quote of the week, overheard at the farm stand: “Mom, they have farm-fresh cookies! And they’re only a dollar for 3! Can we get some?!” He’d read the sign alright. But that’s CUKES, lad, cukes! Hope to see you at The ‘Creek.
