SEASONS LAST DAY WILL BE SUNDAY 7/17/22 -
All good things must come to an end and that is where we're at with the blueberry picking for this season. Sad to say there are still berries on the bushes but with the anticipated forecast of heat exceeding 100 degrees next week we see the writing on the wall. Outback Farm is grateful for the new friends we've made this year, seems like we've had lots of first time visitors. And of course there are those of you, our faithfuls, who just keep coming back. We do appreciate all of you and value that you choose to do business with Outback Farm. Adios amigos! It's a cycle so we will see you again next year.

GET READY, IT'S TIME TO PICK BLUEBERRIES
Seems like it took forever but the 2022 blueberry picking season at Outback Farm in Pryor, OK starts tomorrow, Saturday, 6/4/22 at 7:00am. Hooray! We were wondering if the rain was ever going to give the sun a chance to shine and it finally did. Good news...we are happy to announce prices for the 2022 blueberries will remain the same as they were last year, that is:
U-pick......$25 per gallon
Pre-picked......$32 per gallon
Every single year without fail the "Dukes" are the first blueberry of the season. There is never a specific time we can quote that any particular blueberry is available. But, by mid season most of the varieties are ready for picking, and the last one to ripen is the Elliott.
Spring is Speaking
April 2022 - I have to remind myself on the gray and rainy mornings of spring……it’s okay, Mother Nature is taking care of the watering for a bit.
Now the wind, that’s another story. A little intimidating sometimes but it’s like Mother Nature pruning the pecan trees for us. Picking up the windfall is a great and easy way to exercise, breathe in the fresh air and get those steps in for the day.
And then of course the sunshine…who doesn’t enjoy the warmth of the sun on their face? And as it shines on the blueberry plants you can see how it changes their appearance daily. Yes, daily. One day the canes are bare showing a hint of crimson from the winter, then you begin to see the buds, then the flowers, then the shades of green begin as the plants start to leaf out. It’s miraculous.
Here we go again...
January 2022- Yes, another year behind us and a better one in front of us. Each year around this time it seems to me the weather is getting a little colder or maybe I just have a short memory. In any case here at Outback Farm we anticipate another block buster year for blueberries and so appreciate the cold weather for the chill hours it generates for the plants. We feel so fortunate to have bountiful crops and a bevy of friends to come out and enjoy the fresh air, bright sunshine and of course delicious blueberries. It seems more often than not new years resolutions burden us with expectations of ourselves that do not come to pass. I personally don't do new year resolutions but I sure do get excited about new concepts, ideas and things I want to try. And a repeat idea is okay too. So, in that spirit, my biggest effort this year will be to EAT REAL FOOD (not a new concept) something I get better and better at doing. Want to join me? Eat lots of blueberries. See you April, May for asparagus with blueberries to follow shortly thereafter.
Pick the "blue" ones.Pick the "blue" ones.
We cut asparagus daily and it goes fast on a first come first serve basis.We cut asparagus daily and it goes fast on a first come first serve basis.
