      Peach harvest is not  done yet.  We have a few more varieties to harvest. We may have peaches till the end of August.  Keep checking this web site for updates.  Currently we have freestone peaches: Fay Elberta, 49er, Rio Oso Gem, and Paradise.  It is also the season for cling peaches, the ones that stick to the pit.

      Santa Rosa plums are now  finished till next year. Other plums available are Laroda, Cassi, Casselman and Kelsey.

       Although it is just the beginning of August, we are transitioning into pome fruit.  This means time for apples, pears and Asian pears.  Currently we are selling early Asian pears and a few Gala apples.

        Time to eat your vegetables.  The tomato vines at WoodRose Country Garden are full of tasty red juicy tomatoes.  We are getting a fresh supply of tomatoes daily.  WoodRose also has an abundant supply of San Marzano, a sought after paste tomato for cooking and making sauces.  These are available by the box through preorder.  Let us know.  Squash of several shapes, colors and sizes are available as well as cucumbers, beans, cherry tomatoes, chilies, eggplant, okra, peppers, kale and chard.
