Pickin' Saturday and PGF Scores in Tomato Tasting!

Posted 8/11/2011 9:41pm by Cheryl Ferguson.

Busy times here at Plum Granny Farm!

Come on out for another great day for pick-your-own raspberries on SATURDAY (8/13).  Picking hours are 8:00 a.m. until 1 p.m.  The weather is supposed to be in the low 80s and cloudy with a chance of rain (it was GREAT last weekend here!!). Cloudy days are the best for picking!

We will be picking in the big field directly across the road from the house.  Parking will be in the pasture at the house -- look for the signs and tent.  There are lots of beautiful red Caroline and Heritage berries there -- plus a few more varieties such as the yellow Anne and rich Josephine.

In addition to raspberries, we will have garlic, okra, potatoes, and tomatoes.

And speaking of tomatoes...thanks to so many of you for coming out to the Winston-Salem Journal's "Slice of Summer" Tomato Tasting last Friday. It was a really great evening -- our "Matt's Wild Cherry" tomatoes came in 3rd place in the voting!!  The teeny-weeny Spoon tomatoes were also vote-getters.

Here's a link to Michael Hastings' article on the event from Wednesday:  http://www2.journalnow.com/lifestyles/2011/aug/10/tasting-ar-1283838/

Here's to happy, healthy, organic eating and enjoying that hint of autumn in the air,

Cheryl & Ray
