Wow, this hot weather has made everything grow like crazy this week. We actually had to pick the asparagus twice yesterday, which is rare, because of how fast it was growing. It grows an inch an hour when it is this hot! So, we currently have plenty of asparagus on hand, but if you want large quantities, it is still best to call ahead and have us save it for you. 269-244-5690. It is $1.65 pound. Given the weather extremes we have had this spring, we expect a shorter than usual asparagus season, so come out and get it soon.
We have a nice selection of various vegetable plants, with several varieties of tomato and peppers plants. They are 30 cents per plant, or a 4-pack for $1.00. We also have hanging baskets, the 10-inch pots sell for $15 and the 20-inch pots sell for $20.
Ruth’s Candy is back!! Many of you have been asking for her famous pecan and cashew brittle. She delivered it today and we will have it now for the 2011 season.
All of the orchards are blooming now, the apple trees are at their peak blossom stage, so if you come out, make sure to take a look as you drive by them.
Baked goods. Some of you may have gotten some of the wonderful Mother’s Day baked goods we had last weekend with the amazing rhubarb-strawberry pie. Sorry to say that we won’t have baked goods starting back up for the year until June 3. The baker is busy graduating from high school!
Everyone at Corey Lake Orchards looks forward to seeing you soon!
