Asparagus, Not Yet:
With this unusually warm weather, we are receiving lots of inquiries about whether asparagus is ready. The initial picking that came up last week froze on one of the cold nights, so we’re waiting for new growth. Depending on the weather, we might have some the week of April 19th. We’ll post it on the website as soon as we do and send an email. You are always welcome to call us: 269-244-5690.
If you are in the area, feel free to come look at, smell and take pictures of the orchards in bloom. The cherries are in full bloom right now, with pears and apples a few days away. They are beautiful to see and we would love to share them with you.

Field Tomatoes: Given my Dad’s desire to always have the first tomatoes ripe in Michigan, he put several thousand plants out in the field in the last few days. So… we are hoping for no more frost and freezes, but in the meantime, stand by ready to come out and help us cover them up if needed!!
