Spring Harvest On The Farm Update

As we are getting on with our spring pickle crop, it is amazing to see the yields and quality of pickles that are being harvested. The early pickle vines were in rough shape due the high winds and rains a couple of weeks ago and it was an anxious time. I must give credit to – and brag about – our farm team for the care and attention that they gave to our crops to get the water off as fast as possible and nurse them back to health.

Also amazing is the fact that the sweet corn really came out of the wind and rain nicely. After seeing it blown over and water-logged, we were happy to see it standing straight and tall once again.

So far this season our pest pressures have been very light so we have done very little spraying and only used bio-friendly chemicals for the most part.

It looks like the corn is going to be early by a week or so and until the Market opens on the 29th, we will have corn for sale on east side of highway 441 across from Orlando North Airport ( just south of Zellwood), as soon as it is ready.

All is well down here on the farm so far this spring season, but please don’t hesitate to send us your concerns or questions. In the meantime, we’ll look forward to seeing you for the opening of Scott’s Country Market on April 29th!
