Our 2023 season is well underway. We are now open daily at our JFK (former Shopko) location from 9am-1pm. We have hanging flower baskets, bedding plants, limited vegetable plants, and a small variety of fresh produce. Pre-picked strawberries will begin in mid June, and pick your own berries will be available later in June, date TBD. Check back for updates. The greenhouses are now closed for the season.
We expect to open our Blain's Farm & Fleet location in late June or early July, date TBD. Both the JFK and Blain's locations will have extended hours when our sweet corn begins. Our long range forecast as of May 21st is that our sweet corn will begin around July 5th. The exact date may change, as the growth is dependent on weather conditions.
During the last 10 years, our sweet corn has began between July 3rd and July 14. Our earliest ever start to our sweet corn season was on June 24, 2012. The timing of our first sweet corn date depends completely on the weather in the early growing season. Our sweet corn typically ends in mid-late September, all weather dependent. We have typically planted our first sweet corn between April 1st - April 22th.
