We are ready for 2016

The orchard and berry patch are looking great for the 2016 harvest. Phil and Tigger Cat have put in many hours of labor getting the trees, vines, and bushes pruned and in good shape to bear fruit this season.

We expect the blackberries to be ready to pick in early June. Phil tries to have his first corn ready by our July 4th picnics. Blueberries are a July crop along with peaches. We are keeping our fingers crossed that the cold does not kill the peach crop. They are the most fragile or cold sensitive of our fruits.

The William’s Pride is our first apple to ripen in late July. We have seventeen apple varieties and something is ripening all the way to frost in late October.
