How the fruit looked just last week. Hoods will no longer be available already-picked, Raspberries and blueberries are starting to come in and should be available in abundance by June 26th or so.
Hood strawberries are now available in our store. Hoods are the sweetest, most flavorful strawberries available today and we have them. The season only lasts till early July, so don’t wait.
U-pick hood strawberries will begin this Thursday. The u-pick field will be open 8:00 to 7:00. What a sweet time of year.
U-pick season begins, starting with Hood strawberries. Seriously, these are the most delicious things on earth, and are only available for a short time.
It looks like it’s going to be a very good crop this year, i’m thrilled; when you taste Hood strawberries, you will be, too.
Our general hours are Mon through Sat, 8:00 to 7:00, but we sometimes have to close because of rain or to let the fruit ripen so please call before you come out, 503-362-5105.
this is how happy we are:
Our store is open Monday through Saturday, 9:00 to 6:00 with our own strawberries and local produce. In a few weeks, we will have blueberries, raspberries, back berries, cherries, currants, and much, much more.
We also have nursery plants:
Perennials are plants that bloom year after year. Our perennials ad summer color to your yard, are very hardy, and are easy to grow.
We also feature roses:
We offer old roses like Blaze and Cecil Brunner, and modern English roses. All of our roses grow on their own roots which makes them hardier and perform better than grafted roses.
We we also offer local produce:
Well, the bananas may not be local, and as always delicious baked goods.
We love this time of year, we love ou store and we hope you come see us!
When will strawberry season begin? Well, soon! Our store will open with already picked Seascape strawberries on 17 May. Our u-pick HOOD strawberry patch will open late May. HOODS, HOODS, HOODS! In case you didn’t know, Hood strawberries are the most delicious things on earth.
Please keep checking back for updates on the start of u-pick season. We will let you know as soon as we can set a definite date. We look forward to seeing you (and eating strawberries!).
Here is an unusual fruit: quince is shaped like a pear, has fuzzy skin like a peach, and has yellow flesh that turns pink when cooked.
Quince is quite hard when raw so is usually eaten cooked. The flavor is tart like a lemon but distinctively unique.
We use this fruit many different ways. When frying potatoes we add a little quince for flavor and tang. We cook roast pork with quince and onions. We also cook it with water, sugar, cinnamon, and cloves. Because quince is very high in pectin, this cooks to a marmalade that we use for quince tart or on top of cheese cake.
quince are available u-pick for $.75 a pound or at our store for $1.25.
Black currants are now available u-pick. Black currants are among the most nutritious of all fruits, packed with vitamins, anti-oxidants, and even iron. Blueberries are pretty good for you, too, and guess what?
The blueberries are already ripe and ready to pick (and available in our store). Plus:
Gooseberries! Don't you need more gooseberries in your life? I know I do. We offer red gooseberries which are crunchy like a green grape and sweet enough to eat out of hand. The flavor is something like a kiwi.
We offer many different varieties of blooming perennials and roses. Our perennials have all been tested in our own gardens and are excellent performers and reliably hardy. Our roses are grown on their own roots, unlike the bare-root roses sold in stores which are grafted. this makes our roses more reliably hardy.
We offer tomatoes, both modern short-season and heirloom varieties.
Love our strawberries? We sell the plants, along with current, gooseberries, raspberries, and blackberries..
Prices: gallon perennials, $8.00, 2 gallon, $14.00. Gallon roses, 11.00, 2 gallon 19.00. Fruiting plants are $5.00. These are really good prices!
Monday through Saturday, 9:00 to 6:00, we are open for the 2018 season with already-picked Seascape strawberries. U-pick Hood strawberries will begin Wednesday May 30th. Also available: baked goods, produce, blooming perennials, and roses.
Hood strawberries are still availabe u-pick, but are no longer available in our store. Amazingly, strawberries will return in August through October with Seascape everbearing strawberries which are pretty delicious. Raspberries and BLACK CURRANTS are now availble u-pick.

Apple season is hereRead More
And they should win prizes: Triple Crown blackberries are large, sweet, mild in flavor, and very easy to pick as they are THORNLESS! Triple Crowns season usually runs the month of August, but, like all other fruits this year, are about two weeks early. Peak season is here now and I expect Triple Crowns to be available till mid August.
Well, lots of them, anyway! Freestone peaches are now availble...Read More
Then, maybe some pies. These beauties are apple/blackberry. I make more of these than any other variety because they are very popular and because I only use fresh fruit and apples are always available fresh.
We are at the Salem Public Market from November-end of may with delicious baked goods and fresh produce. The market is open every Saturday year round from 8:30-2:00Read More
