Week 4 Berry season in full swing

Erin up to her elbows in Sylvanberries.

The many colors and textures of nutritious kale. This one is ruffly and purple. It will hold onto whatever you slather it in or drizzle over it.

A new variety to us this year, long and bumpy, kind of blue.

Crunchy old stand by, always a solid performer for us.

Mary is a champion blueberry picker.

Kendra and Damara picking Marionberries. Today is a trifecta berry day.

Terry is handling the pole pea harvest today.

A pretty kale ruffle in a different color.

Greenhouse tomatoes are ripening.

Some ripen in clusters.

Little helper in the greenhouse helping mom pick tomatoes.

Beautiful lavender and purple gladiolas as seen through the Sylvanberries.

More blueberry helpers. So many berries today.

Orange beets.

And red beets.

Kale, celery and broccoli hydrating on this warm day.

Chives are cut, banded and labeled ready for the boxes.

Bee Balm or Monarda is also ready to be put in the boxes. This is good for tea as well as being pretty.

Usually the last thing harvested, the lettuce is washed and ready to be taken home.

Lavender, 20 piles, just to make sure everyone gets very close to the same amount. Then the piles are rubber banded and ready to go home for refreshing smells.

Our color framed chalkboard with notes for the day.

Today's list of goodies.

Bryan, Grams, and Terry bundling spinach.

Today's box contents. (Only one flower bouquet per box, but they are so pretty I put two in the pictures.)

See you next time, Lorrie
