|Yesterday morning and this morning our workers Ben Miller (placing pears in bags), Luke Laws (on ladder, picking pears), Tre Maxton (not in photo) and I picked over 600 pounds of 'Luscious' pears.|
|'Luscious' pears live up to their name, and I give taste samples.|
We also have a very small amount of a few early apple varieties, and some selections from my apple breeding program, which I harvest and have for sale. Our pick-your-own apple season will start about Sept. 22 and run until about Nov. 12, as shown on the ripe dates in the sidebar at left. That's also our main apple season, when we have many harvested apples for sale.
More red raspberries ripen each day until the first fall freeze in late Oct. or early Nov., so you can often pick a few pints of raspberries if you ask about them.
We're still open our summer hours through Aug. 31: open 7:30 a.m. to 12 noon Mon.-Sat., closed from 12 noon to 7:00 p.m., and open 7 p.m. until dark each evening. Our fall hours (see sidebar at left) will start on Sept. 1.
