There's a high chance of rain over the next few days, but our pick-your-own apple season will continue for the next 5 to 6 weeks. Weekdays are good uncrowded times to pick apples, for those who are able to come then.
You can get harvested apples even in the rain; they're kept in top condition in our cooler. Besides 'Enterprise', we also have many harvested 'Scarlett O'Hara', 'Sundance' and 'Jonafree' apples for sale, and a few boxes each of many other varieties and selections, including some from my apple breeding program that I just named this year. I give taste samples of all 28 of our apple varieties and selections, to those interested in buying them.
Pears and Asian pears are now sold out for the season. Pecans are also sold out, until we start harvesting and cracking the new pecan crop in late Nov.
We use plastic grocery sacks in different colors for pick-your-own apples, and appreciate it if customers can bring some clean, non-ripped, used bags. Reusing is better for the environment than recycling. We now have plenty of gray bags, but could use more white, tan, yellow or blue bags.
For payment, we accept paper, not plastic: we take cash and checks, but NO debit cards or credit cards, so plan accordingly.
