Our raspberry picking season is over. A lot of good folks picked most of the berries – the turkeys and the chipmunks will enjoy the rest.
The four inches of rain this week battered some of the berries, but will help get much better size on the apples. The pictures show Zestars which will start on early apple weekend – probably Sept 1 & 2 and Honeycrisp which will start later in September.
Thanks for making the berry harvest a good one and put us on your calendar for the fall.
Saturday July 28 and Sunday July 29 will be the last two days for raspberry picking.
You will find good berries as well as some that show the effects of all the (much needed) rain. I think the Nova’s are best, but you can find good fruit in the Boyne’s as well. Royalty (purple) are also ripe.
The apple crop is growing well and the rain will help get better sized fruit after the very dry summer so far.
