Whats Fresh for September 4, 2010

Does that say September?? Well I guess it does and is the next month already. Its been feeling Autumn-ish , cool nights, shorter days and the quality of the light has changed. But not to brood on the impending season change, its still warm and there will be soft fruit for the month. The cool nights do help the apples color up. I thought we’d have the next variety of nectarines this week but the cooler temperatures has slowed ripening on them a bit, next week for sure, and then for probably at least three weeks.

Burbank Plum

This week we’ll have:
-Garnet Peaches
-Red Globe Peaches
-Babcock White Peaches
-Raritan Rose White Peaches
-Independence Nectarines (Not many)
-Shiro Plums
-Burbank Plums
-Akane Apples
-Gravenstein Apples
-Sansa Apples
-Sunrise Apples
-Tydeman Apples
-A few Tomatoes
When we came home last Saturday we found fresh signs of a bear in the orchard, but not since or any fruit missing. We did see a little one while driving (about a 1/2 mile from our place) on our road on Tuesday, looked like a yearling to me, too cute.

Tydeman Apple, a cross between McIntosh & Worcester Pearmain

New for next week we will have Fantasia and Red Gold Nectarine, Red Clapp Pear, Swiss Arlet Apple, and more peaches.
See you Saturday.
