I've been checking Davis for a few weeks and saw no activity except an Open In July sign that looked like it could have been there since last year, and a 64(?) acres For Sale sign next to their driveway.

I visited Woodside Farms a week or so ago. They didn't have peaches yet but one of the proprietors said he thought they might have this last week, but yesterday I only saw blueberries in the shed. I stopped at Wickham's and bought a basket of 7 large peaches, that look great and will probably be ready in another day or two.

I took Sound Avenue on my way back to Nassau County to see about tomatoes at Rottkamp. Yes, and had my first today. Delicious!

While in the area, I thought I would drive to Davis' driveway just because. Driving down Hulse Landing Road, it looked just as dormant as it had my previous two scouting missions. I swung wide to make a u-turn in their drive, I was almost shocked and very pleasantly surprised to see cars parked, customers and peaches for sale. Bought a large basket and when I was leaving, Ms. D said I should refrigerate them, which I never do. They are ripe now as opposed to the usual 3 day wait so after eating a few today, the rest, if any :-) will be used for ice cream etc.

Just wanted to share the good news as I was very doubtful of them opening at all...
