|These Asian pear blooms have many killed pistils, such as all the lowest flowers in the photo, but some flowers still have live pistils.|
|These 'China Pearl' peach trees (with pink blooms) ant the pear trees in the background (with white blooms) still have good crops|
Our workers and I pruned more blackberries this afternoon, and I will be busy pruning peach trees and apple trees all next week. We still have many 'Enterprise' and 'GoldRush' apples for sale, and cracked 'Kanza' pecans. Phone 620-597-2450 a day or so ahead, and leave a message on the answering machine saying the day and about what time you're coming. When I'm pruning the peach and apple orchards, I can't see or hear vehicles come in the driveway, so it's best to call ahead, but if you drop by, ring the bell on the sales building, which I can usually hear.
Prices for apples, pecans and asparagus are listed in the previous post. Asparagus should start about April 1 (later than I first thought, as we had cooler weather for awhile) and will be available until late May or early June.
