Honeycrisp picking has begun

Honeycrisp are best when picked with a yellow background and are bright red in color.  Please be careful when picking any apple to leave all branching and twigs on the tree.  Just twist to remove the apple and its stem.  Since the crop for next year is already formed in buds on the trees, if you remove the twigs you may remove next years bud/apple.  I heard this morning that a few very tart Macouns may be ripe on the trees, but the Macoun flavor will be developed later toward the end of this month.

The blueberry crop has been great for us this season.  One reason is that our planting is finally mature and robust.  We hope you that have been enjoying them, from pick your own to picking them up at a farmers market.  

The cooler than normal summer has delayed the ripening of many crops, not significantly, but maybe a few days to a week.  

Last year at this time we literally had tons of tomatoes; this year, we may have a few hundred pounds…but they are coming.  We see loads of green tomatoes hanging.  Tons are still coming. 
  
We are harvesting white and yellow peaches, sweet corn, blackberries, blueberries, cherry tomatoes, tomatoes (12  varieties), zucchini and summer squash, and white and purple eggplant. 

PICK YOUR OWN THIS WEEKEND ON SUNDAY MORNING ONLY (9AM to 1PM)

BLUEBERRIES
BLACKBERRIES
RASPBERRIES red and yellow(very few)
CHERRY TOMATOES 5 varieties
