Tomatoes Climb Apple Trees While Donuts Get Suspicious and Peaches Pick Their Own Dang Selves.

FARMER STEVE SITS ATOP his gigantic rickety tractor.  Scans the crops with one eye.  Studies a nimbus cloud with the other.  He is all silence and a furrowed brow.  He is cogitating and formulating.  At last, he hollers the week’s directive to the sales team, “Don’t hard sell the peaches, they’re picking themselves!”

What is this world coming to?  Self-picking peaches?  (Well, that’s what it seems like with you people gobbling them up so fast.)

What next?!  Before you know it, the donuts will become self-aware and eat themselves.  Better grab these old-time treats while you can.  Served fresh Saturday and Sunday, 11ish to 4ish.

Behind every good cider donut, there’s an even better cider.  Second pressing of the year.  Cold, crisp, and delicious.

Where there’s smoke, there’s fire; where there’s cider, there’s apples.  Now picking, the best earlies: Zestar, Gingergold, and Sansa.

It’s tomato time.  The rows of Romas are busting loose.  Please come pick pecks for sauces, salads, and salsas.

Beefsteaks, too.  They’re neither beefs nor steaks.  But they go great with both.  Mild-mannered but capable of surprising feats.

Peppers a-plenty.  Bells, jalapeños, cayennes… How about these poblanos grilled with cream cheese, basil, lemon zest, garlic, and onion stalks?!  Submitted by Facebook fan Katie.

Eggplant.  A truly multicultural fruit.  Lives for your stir fry.  Loves your ghanouj.  Longs for your melanzana.

Farmer Alice has more flowers than you have thoughts.  Think about THAT.  At least ten hundred squillion need picking here.
