What's Ready for U-Picking in Late October into November
The days are getting shorter and the nights are noticeably cooler. We change the clock and adjust our regular u-pick hours on Sunday, November 6. Our Winter hours are Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays, from eleven to four.
There is a chance of a light frost just around the corner. Our Summer crops of tomatoes and squash are almost finished, but a few might still hang on for a few more weeks.
Here are some of the crops we expect to have for visitors to u-pick this time of the year:
arugula, peppers, olives, escarole, lettuce, kohlrabi, pak choy, fennel, bay leaves, Swiss chard, beets, kale, green onions, radishes, rhubarb, lettuce, pea sprouts, persimmons, collard greens, radishes, parsley, calendula flowers, Malabar spinach & flowers, and komatsuna.
Come to our farm to taste fresh fruits, flowers, herbs, and vegetables that have flavors unlike any you have experienced before. Let us know if you are brave and want to sample a taste of Absinthe wormwood.
We practice diverse crop rotations so that the soil stays healthy and productive. New plantings we are starting during the late Fall and into Winter are garlic, mustard, peas, spinach, fava beans, cilantro, shallots, cilantro, and fenugreek. We are open every week of the year, so as crops are u-picked we have to keeping new crops growing in their space. We stay open on rainy days, so bring your rainwear.
Please keep in mind we also have raw honey, potted edible plants, and dried herbs and seeds for sale.
