        Plans or no plans for the 4th of July, we have peaches and tomatoes.  The tomatoes are just starting to come in.  Red slicing tomatoes, Roma tomatoes and a few cherry tomatoes. We also have crisp, tender, and tasty Asian cucumbers for salads or a relish plate.   Eggplants and peppers are also getting ready for harvest.
       New this year are vegetables from Lani's Garden.  Lani gardens around the corner from us in Granite Bay.  So far she has brought us leaf lettuce, American eggplants, Jalapeno peppers and Anaheim peppers.   Keep watching to see what else she grows.
       Also ready for the celebration are several yellow freestone peach varieties.  Red Haven and June Pride are our favorites and we also have Regina, PF-11 and Flavorcrest.  Sunnyslope Farm is bringing us Flavorcrest, June Pride and maybe a few White Lady peaches.  Time to start making peach pie, peach cobbler and peach crisp.  You can ask us for a recipe.
     Red Beaut plums are about finished but we have a great supply of Santa Rosa plums with their memorable flavor.  There are also some sweet plums with pinkish red flesh called Frontier.
       For now we are getting about a box of black mission figs every two days.  It is a nice looking burber crop, but it might not last long.

      We are selling hoshigaki from last season.  It is available at the farm stand as strips or whole pieces.   Give us a call if you want to order by mail so we can discuss the possibilities.  We are hesitant to ship mail orders due to the heat. (916) 791-1656

      There are several local honey choices at this time. Nastase Honey Farm has a cute honey bear with raw, unfiltered honey.  Our own beekeeper has honey from Otow Orchard as well as orange blossom honey from a valley citrus grove.  Top O' the Hill Apiary in Granite Bay has honey, bee pollen and boxes of beautiful comb honey.
