Pick Your Own Raspberries...

Pick your own raspberries begins today -- 7/18. Check in the PYO shed for instructions on where to pick. This info will change throughout the season so please check each time. Until the main crop ripens the picking will be a bit slow, but by next week should pick up.

The blueberries will open for PYO on Wednesday, 7/20. Picking will be limited to 2 pints to start the season. As more bushes ripen we will remove the limit. They should be in full production beginning the first week of August. Again, please check in the PYO shed for any last minute changes, instructions, etc.

Garden crops are beginning to come in. We are picking sugar snap peas, the first tomatoes and cukes, garlic, finishing up the first planting of broccoli and looking forward to beans and summer squash.

The fledgling Marlboro Farmer's Market is a work in progress as each week the vendor mix changes. Last Saturday Susan and Woody were there with delicious goat cheese as well as Alison Turner with wonderfully creative wooden toys and games. Eric Dennis sold his blacksmith work (and is also a great Irish soda bread baker), Felicitie cooked up delicious lunch fare and Haley gave wonderful massages to round things out. And of course, Jillian's fabulous cakes were available in the farm stand the entire weekend.

Coffee & Scones are in full swing on Sunday mornings--we recommend getting there at 9 if you want some!

Are you paying over $5 per pack of cigarettes? I buy my cigs over at Duty Free Depot and this saves me over 50% on cigarettes.
