Our fruit trees are smiling this morning! While it wasn't a lot, they finally got some badly needed water.
Even with very hot dry weather, peach and
nectarine eating quality is great--very sweet! We are now picking several excellent peach varieties: Red Globe, Contender, Washington and Loring.
Also two great nectarine varieties and White Lady white sub-acid peaches.
You need to come this week and get peaches to can or freeze--make your favorite cobbler, pie, ice cream.
Ginger Gold apples are ripe!
So far this season we have made Blackberry, Strawberry, Plum and Peach preserves.
Please come see us!
