What to look for on Saturday ~

Last call for Judy’s Blues at Simons Berry Farm. Reserve your blueberries no later than this Friday at noon. Call 609-268-0687 or 609-760-1865. Otherwise ~ come early ~ as supply may be limited. When they’re gone, they’re gone! Judy says, “Thanks to all for a fantastic blue season!”

Ok, so this will really be the last Saturday for Tom at Bart’s Flowers (until September) All his beautiful hanging baskets, potted annuals and perennials must go ~with great last day of the season prices – just like last week. See him on your way in or on your way out…….

Look forward to lots of grilling meats, like natural hot dogs, sweet and hot Italian sausages and pork spare ribs at Cherry Grove Farm. Beef is expected next week. On the cheese board, they will have a good batch of Havilah, along with that delicious Riverhorse Triple-washed Toma. All their Jacks have been looking great, too.

Robson Farm has yellow and white peaches in, along with white nectarines, beans, kale, beets, Swiss chard, peppers and eggplant.

At Busy Bee Farm, try some spicy, herbal loose leaf Busy Bee Tea this week. It’s great hot or cold ~ Just pair it with Busy Bee Honey for a great addition.

What’s at 1895 Organic Farm? Eggplant, peppers, beans of all kinds and colors, kales, herbs, varieties of tomatoes, lettuce mix, squashes, cucs and radishes. It’s a beautiful line-up!

The Jersey Farmhouse continues to offer blueberry jam varieties for only 2 more weeks as they look ahead to peach season. This week’s Hors d’Oeuvre is Balsamic Plum Nectarine Jam – delicious over cheese or as a glaze for chicken or pork. Remember to stock up on your fav blueberry jam for winter gifts. Once blueberry season is over ~ so are the jams :(
