Gravenstein, Ginger Gold, Honeycrisp and Gala Apples

We are reaching the end of the earliest varieties – Ginger Gold and Gravenstein but the Honeycrisp and Gala apples are just about ready.  You can try picking them now.  There will be ripe ones that come off the tree easily.  We will wait a little longer to pick them for the stand.

Peaches, freestone yellow varieties, are available for PYO.  The current variety is to harder to find in the orchard, the next ones are almost ready to go.  White peaches are gone for this year.

You will find the early apples on the stand a while longer with our honey, peaches and maybe some tomatoes!

Blues and Yellows

The blueberries are gone!

However, at the stand we’ve got our yellow peaches, honey, sunflowers, tomatoes and jam.

You can pick your own peaches, not quite ripe, but a couple of days on your kitchen counter should ripen them nicely. Ask for how to tell when to pick, and directions to the one ripe variety.

SLIM PICKING TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY

White and yellow peaches will be available Tuesday and Wednesday. Honey, sunflowers and jam should be at the stand too.

Picking is not looking favorable for blueberries for those 2 days. There are more green than blue ones right now.  Picking will be better by Thursday.
If wind and rain come – though it doesn’t look that way now!- we may stay under the tent but look for us in the stand if the tent is empty!

Saturday, July 18

It’s not surprising that people would like to get outside, pick berries off the bushes and soak up some sunshine and many enjoyed doing  just that this week. We’ll be open today, Saturday July 18, but think you will find better picking next week.  If you come to pick be ready to hunt for them, looking inside and under the branches.  Please bring your mask to wear and plan to keep your family picking together.

There are so many green berries to ripen in the next few weeks!

Peaches are gone until Tuesday.  As the season progresses we should have peaches every day.  It’s just the beginning!

When you are picking it should be very close to the quiet and productive time you’ve spent here in the past.

The 6′ rule applies to the stand and in the berries.

We will be writing about the details of checking in and out.

There will be hand-washing station in 4 locations.

We will be wearing masks and gloves and sanitizing surfaces through out the day.

Early in the morning it is much busier than the afternoon. If you want extra space consider that time to pick.
