January and February have certainly flown by as we await our precious pink buds -- the beloved peach blossoms. Right now we have seen a little movement in the orchard on a handful of June varieties in terms of blooms. However, the majority of our trees are holding tight buds at the moment. This is a huge blessing as we anticipate freezing temps during the first few days of March. For a complete peach crop update, please tune in to the video below.
2019 Peach Crop update - Early blooms
Our strawberry crop has also started seeing some blooms. From pollination to a ripe berry takes about 28 days, give or take. Of course we say the redder the better - and anticipate harvest to begin in early April. We're certainly praying for the Lord to provide great weather in 2019 - which means limited rain (compared to last year's 86" of rain) during strawberry season if at all possible, in addition to temps above freezing during March to protect the peach crop. And this certainly holds true not just for our family's farm but for fruit and vegetable growers across the Southeast! Check out our Facebook page in the coming days for a strawberry update from Drew!
2019 Popup Markets
In March we will kick-off weekly visits to Braselton, and bi-weekly visits to Winder. We appreciate our community partnership with Northeast Georgia Medical Center for welcoming us to their hospital locations. We anticipate a return to Gainesville in April, along with visits to Northside Forsyth's campus in Cumming. Additionally, we'll be making monthly visits to Piedmont Athens Regional.
