BYOB, B & B for ROSAPALOOZA…THURSDAY, JUNE 1


We have just come in from picking by flashlight, 
but you are probably reading this in the morning.  
If not... Go To Bed!... so you can get up and come by early!


GOOD MORNING SUNSHINE!


SECOND FLUSH IS IN!

We have Roses, Roses, Roses and Peaches and Nectarines!


FRONT DOOR HONOR MARKET WILL BE OPEN 

THURSDAY, JUNE 1
8 - SUNDOWN for fruit
8 - 10 for roses

SO! 

BYOB,  B & B
Bring Your Own Bottles, Buckets & Bags

We'll provide the water, flowers & fruits

While you're here try a sample of our Refreshing Hibiscus Iced Tea. 
We'll also have herbs (rosemary, lemon verbena, lemon balm) available so bring a bottle or bag for those. 
Feeling creative?  We'll have artichoke leaves that make lovely wraps for the roses.
We'll try to pick some kale, chard & tomatoes as well.

Every bush is blooming so we have almost every variety of rose available.
The photo above was taken before sunset as we were just beginning to harvest 
It only shows our fair colored roses.  
We have multi-petalled, single petaled, long stemmed and short, deep colored, vibrant and soft.

With our flowers you can create simply elegant arrangements for your bedside, powder room or desk 
as well as 
go over the top for your dining table, entry or a special occasion.  
Say thank you to your mentor, mother, study buddy, nurse or neighbor, employee or even your employer.
Thank yourself even and let the flowers nourish your heart and soul.

Don't forget that our fruits & flowers have never been touched by chemicals! 
They can be used to decorate cupcakes, cakes, salads, drinks and other foods.  
Ever try a pink rose petal in an ice cube in your drink?!  
Try it!  We think you'll like it!

So get on over here before they are gone.


Good Night!

WOW!  
Peach Eaters!  
You're wiping us out.  
&! 
We love it.  
We are starting to get smaller peaches 
but 
that means there will be more in your bags.  
We will probably have another day or two to pick from this tree 
then 
we'll carefully wait & watch for the other trees to ripen.  
to stay up to the minute on availability

The apricots in the photo are precious few or we'd share.  


When we went to pick at midday today the orchards smelled like roses and peaches!  
That was a first in our memories.
We never pick midday due to the heat but the coolers were empty and fruity duty called.
What the chalkboard says...we see, smell it, live it every day.  
We are tickled to share our slice of heaven with you, be it fruit or flowers.  
Please care for each other and our Earth as tenderly as you do those sweet peaches.


Now for reminders and clarifications on visiting our Front Door Honor Market.
It is an "honor market" and as such these are recommendations 
but it is helpful for you and us in planning.

Open:  
On days that you read or receive notice
Sunrise to Sunset in the warm months

Change:
It's in the the little holder for bottle caps.  
We put coins in one and bills (sorry only $1 bills) in the other.
Try to plan ahead, as change for one bag of fruit from a $20 bill probably won't be there.
Some of you are owed $.50- $2.  Please let us know if you couldn't find the change holders and we'll make sure you get it next time you swing by.  
Just let us know ahead that you're coming so that we have it ready for you.

Running Low:
If the coolers are empty 
or 
there is not enough fruit for what you wanted, 
you have three options
1)  Ring the bell.  We''ll answer if we can.   We'll pick more if we can
2)  Call us.  We may not have heard the bell.  We have almost 2 acres back there soo…
3)  Leave us a note for the next time.

Storage:
These are not your commercial peaches & nectarines.  They are picked at a later maturity because they don't have to board planes and trains, just your automobile s and bikes.   Their skins slide off easily, peeling is a breeze.  Handle Gently.  Notice they are in the bag with the stem side down so that they bruise less and last longer.  This is also how you should keep tomatoes.

Eating:
They have NOT been washed.  Do it just before you prepare or eat.  As you know we use no chemicals at Tre Soli But birds gotta pee and sometimes it lands on our fruit.

Comments:
We always enjoy hearing what happened after our fruit and flowers leave our TLC.
We love to know how you liked our fruit and flowers.  Photos of your peach crisp are great too.   The baby with a face plant into their bowl of peaches, share please.  Recipes you used our fruit and flowers in…yes please!   We won't post anything without your permission.  If you were dissatisfied for any reason please let us know so we have the chance to make it right for you.

Finally:
Sorry people but we can't always read your writing and printing.  Runs in this family too, so no shame.  Just know that like with speaking you'll need to do it clearly or we may not understand and therefor may not respond appropriately.

MORE PEACHES + NECTARINES = JUICY SWEETNESS


FRONT DOOR HONOR MARKET IS OPEN 
Do we have some  Peaches & Nectarines for you!  



And side effects may include juice dribbled down your front!  


 Proper eating etiquette involves a bib and leaning forward from the waist.





Thank you to all who purchased peaches yesterday!  
We could barely keep up to restock.  
Don't forget to make your change.  
If you like our peaches tell your friends.  If not please tell us.


  Look for this flag by the street to know you're at the right farm.  


This is a residential neighborhood with walkers, children, pets, horses and bicyclers.  


 Flags to watch for to guide you to the front door 






Notes you'll find at the stand about making your purchase.  




When we are running low on stock, please let us know by emailing azgardenfresh@gmail.com
We'll pick more and restock


If anyone knows where we could purchase more of the two  flags 
in the photos please let us know.

We're on Instagram@azgardenfresh
You'll find we update it frequently.

IT'S HERE!  
Well almost...Summer that is.
Join us 
Wednesday, May 17
7-9 a.m.
POP UP CLASS
Summer Roses and Compost, A Match Made in Heaven





In the Valley of the Sun we have already hit 100*!  As a matter of fact it was some of the visitors to the Arcadia Edible Tour who were asking about what to do to encourage their roses to make the best of the summer heat.  So if you haven't already it is time to think about Summerizing your roses and others non native plants.  If you want them to make it through the summer and be ready to be vibrant this Autumn.  The Magical Science of Compost is a major component in your bag of tricks so it will also be a major component of this class.

And who knows Jill from Sweet Life Garden may have goat and chicken made soil amendments for show and tell! 

Light seasonal refreshments will be served.  Peaches may be for sale.  The $25 class fee is payable when you arrive for the class.  Directions to the class at The Gardens at Tre Soli will be sent by email after receiving your reservation.  Reservations due by 6 p.m. tomorrow, Tuesday May 16.

For the most current photos go to our Instagram account.  For a historical look at what we grow take a look at our blog.

Hope to see you Wednesday morning when the temperature will be a gorgeous 65*-75*.  Whoo Hoo!!!
