My mom and step-dad did well with blackberries this year. The season is only about three weeks, but they probably made $3,000 or so. By contrast, they planted as many tomato plants as me and probably made closer to a grand sum of $30 off of them.

Fruit always sells; that was my grandparent's experience for the past 30 years. Gooseberries, pie cherries, blackberries, peaches, nectarines, yellow and purple plums, then apples in the fall.

A pumpkin patch can be worth a couple thousand or so for the fall. Deer don't seem to eat pumpkins and gourds.
