Bodacious Sweet Corn

 Sweet Corn is ripe and ready to be picked at Sauvie Island Farms.
We will have fresh picked each day, or you can go out to the corn field and pick your own.  It's $3.00 a dozen.  We just saw again on the news last night a story about the hot weather and drought in the mid-west.  We are so blessed to have corn to pick this year!
Red Haven Peaches are almost all picked out of the orchard.  We will start the Hale-Havens as soon as the Red Havens are gone.  The raspberry and marionberry season is over, but you can hunt around for a few if you like.  Blue Crop Blueberries are waiting to be harvested, and Chester Blackberries are just starting to ripen...lots more to ripen in the next couple of weeks.  
We have a nice selection of  veggies now beans, pickling cukes, zucchini, summer squash, lettuce, cabbage, broccoli, slicing and lemon cucumbers, peppers, basil, dill & cilantro.
The flower fields are just gorgeous!  Now that the weather has cooled down some, it's a great time to come out to the farm!
