Looks like the heat wave is breaking – forecast Saturday Sept 1 is sunny with high of 73 – Sunday will be warmer with possible showers.
So come this weekend to get some Zestars and Ginger Golds at their prime. You can see in the pictures that they are ripening well and the rain has helped them grow.
We will have cider and Mrs. Murphy’s donuts on both Saturday and Sunday – sometimes they run out, sometime not.
Help us start another harvest!!
As you can see in the photo, the Zestars are beginning to color up. They will be ready to pick on early apple weekend Saturday September 1 and Sunday September 2. We expect the yellow Ginger Golds to be ready as well. The crop over all looks very good for most varieties with good size due to all the rain.
Zestars usually sell out on this first weekend. They are a great eating and pie apple – the spicy taste comes thru and they stay firm. We make our pies with them.
Not sure yet whether we will have cider and donuts on the first weekend, but I will post early next week when I can confirm.
We will be closed Monday Sept 3 thru Thursday Sept 6 and then reopen for our regular Tuesday thru Sunday – closed Monday’s schedule.
Come help us kick off another harvest!!
