Strawberries are looking great, much better than last year. The cool weather this upcoming week will slow the process somewhat, but hopefully there are no frost or freezing temps (like last year when many berries were lost). We should be starting to harvest in about two weeks. Currently there are a lot of flowers and some berries starting to form.
Although the Stand is officially closed, we have a supply of spaghetti squash, butternut squash and pie pumpkins remaining. If interested in purchase, please call 610-593-5656 to arrange pick up (contactless if preferred.)
We have transitioned to a smaller, self-serve Pumpkin Stand (cash only). Cooking pumpkins, squash and a few other pumpkins/gourds will available through Thanksgiving.
Replace canned pumpkin with tastier, fresh pumpkin. It’s easy to bake pumpkin halves in the oven, then scoop out the soft flesh to use in your favorite recipes, or try something new! I love to add pumpkin to my regular recipes for chili, sloppy joes, pancakes, etc. For more details, check out the Cooking a Pumpkin tab.
We have pumpkins! The season is winding down, but we have a good selection remaining. (Picture shows the latest load to come in from the field.) This weekend marks the last days of full-service pumpkin adventures. After Sunday, the Pick-Your-Own patch closes and the pumpkin games will be put away. A smaller stand with some pumpkins, cooking pumpkins, and squash will remain available through Thanksgiving.
