Welcome Webfooters!

Our most recent addition to the Blue Nickol Family, these lovely gals are here to stay! Slaying slugs and waddling around the garden, they're already laying eggs! Look for duck eggs to be available in the red egg-fridge soon!! 

Meanwhile, the berries are coming along nicely. The fruit has set and it's looking like it'll be a bountiful season. The green berries haven't started to turn color yet, but it shouldn't be long and we'll see some blue! If the heat continues it's looking like we'll open the field for U-Pick beginning June 10th or 15th, or so. Stay tuned, or stop by the farm and check in. 

Looking forward to seeing you all soon and kicking the season!! 



Sunshine and Blue Sky, Pruned and Pushing

We wrapped up our prunning last month, and it was just in time for spring to fully unfold!

With the low temperatures we experienced all through the winter and early spring the blueberry bushes were late to break out of dormancy. But now spring is in full swing. The irises are unfolding, the grass is growing what seems like an inch a day, there's the sweet smell of lilacs in the air. This is spring! Our second fig tree, which was a sucker start off our original tree, is beginning to put energy into growing it's fruit. It's limbs stretching for the sky.

Everything this time of year is stretching for the sky!
