Our pomegranate season has started. We are picking each day hoping to beat any forcasted rain or before they pop open. Frank and I did something different this year. What we used to do is each take a side of a row and pick all around the trees and place the poms on the ground. When we finished a row, Frank would bring the tractor and we would fill the bucket with the picked poms and then take them over to the shed for me to sort sizes and condition.
We are selling the pomegranates very reasonable by the small, medium, large sizes and small, medium, large case sizes. Also selling the jumbo poms for $1 each and yesterday I saw them in the stores, maybe a medium sized one for $3. If interested in any of our pomegranates, give us a call.
Luckily, I had the help to do all of this from a good friend, Sarah. We made 20 large table arrangements; 15 boutonnieres; 1 Bride's bouquet; 9 Bridesmaid bouquets; table greens, 3 corsages.
The bride's colors were pinks, mauves, taupes, violet, purples, with greens from hydrangeas.
Lots of photos of flowers, I love how the corsages turned out.
Sad to say our growing season is ending for flowers and produce. I did pick a huge basket full of egg plant and picked apples for the roadside stand out front. And of course, all our pumpkins are ready along with the poms.
