We will be opening our roadside stand in Arkansaw tomorrow, Monday, July 12th with cucumbers, popcorn (yellow, white, red/white/blue), and maple syrup from 8 a.m. until 6 p.m. or until sold out.
Below are pictures of how our produce is currently looking and when we think it will be ready for you to enjoy:
The sweet corn is tasseling and cobs have formed with brown silk on top. Over the next week or so the cobs will continue to grow and the kernels will color up. We expect the sweet corn to be ready the week of July 19-23. We will update as we get closer to opening day.
The pickling and slicing variety of cucumbers are ready and we will be open for them Monday, July 12 from 8 a.m. until 6 p.m. or sold out. Since the cucumbers are just starting we do not expect to have cucumbers the full hours.
We are starting to see a few zucchini and yellow summer squash on the plants and expect to have some available later this week or next week.
This year we are growing both yellow and red onions again. They have nice sized bulbs on them and expect to have some available in the next couple of weeks.
We will have both Red Norland and Yukon Gold potatoes available later this week along with the cucumbers.
Our tomatoes are starting to blossom and we are seeing some small green tomatoes on many plants. We expect the tomatoes to be ready around late July to early August.
This year we are again planning on having bell peppers, sweet peppers (orange, yellow, and red), and hot jalapeno peppers. We are starting to see a few small peppers on the plants and expect them to be ready around the beginning of August.
The muskmelon we transplanted on plastic have nice sized melons. We expect to start having muskmelon starting around the beginning of August.
The watermelon we transplanted on plastic have nice sized melons. We expect to start having watermelon starting around early to mid August.
Our squash varieties are blossoming and we are starting to see small squash on each plant. The first varieties of squash to be available will be spaghetti and millionaire spaghetti sometime in August.
The pumpkins are starting to blossom. We will start selling a few pumpkins around the middle of September.
