I’m trying something new in the hopes of boosting our vegetable and flower sales at Gaddy’s. I’m opening parts of the garden up for a U-Pick Day at the feed store. If you’d like to pick some green beans, corn, carrots, onions or beautiful sunflowers, drop by the store tomorrow and I’ll guide you through the picking process. Not all parts of the garden are open for U-Pick but we have a bunch of fun things to pick. Prices for U-Pick are 10% off regular price. Supervised children are welcome.
Look at all the beautiful sunflowers I planted that are just looking for a table top to decorate. Come pick a bouquet tomorrow. These sunflowers are a cut flower variety called Pro-Cut. They are pollen-free (no yellow dust on the table) and have a very long vase-life.
I’ll still be doing a ‘big pick’ of the garden in the morning to stock the store’s vegetables. In the store we will have tomatoes, cucumbers, squash, potatoes, eggplant and more available. All produce is grown right here on our lot using organic growing practices.
Update – Saturday. Too rainy for U-Pick. As soon as the garden dries out, we will open it for U-Pick, 5 days a week. Stay tuned for the U-Pick schedule.
