Thanks for checking out Brix N Berries blog spot. I will be using the blog as a way to keep those who are interested in what's happening and more importantly what's available here at the farm and the market.
The Saskatoon berries are starting to bloom and the orchard is starting to turn white. Its an exciting time of the year as we anxiously await the berry harvest which should be approx. mid July. Keep checking the website for information about opening of the U-Pick season.
The strawberries are planted and with the co - operation of mother nature should have a regular supply from July through to the fall.
The rest of the garden is underway and we will have the same crops as last season. For those of you that inquired at the market last week, and for any others that may be curious we will have our very popular corn, carrots, and flat head cabbage. As well we'll have our regular crops of beets, broccoli and cauliflower, beans etc.
It was fun to get back to the market this past week. The Leduc Farmers Market had a great opening day, and it was nice to see all the familiar faces from last season. Brix N Berries will not be attending the market regularly probably until the end of June, but we will attend every other week with syrup, nuts, saskatoon topping and non-alcoholic champagne until the veggies and fruit are ready. New for this year is our 60%, 70%, and Espresso DARK CHOCOLATE from Barbados. Whats unique about this product is its very short list of ingredients, curious......stop by and check it out and of course a sample.
Look forward to seeing you sometime this summer!
