Last Market (for the season) November 13

The market this weekend will be our last for the season. Its a wonder where the time goes,
seems like it was summer just a couple of weeks ago.
We finally got a freeze and a little dusting of snow this week, which melted promptly, but the hills above us are covered.

This week we will have:
-Belle de Boskopp Apples
-Northern Spy Apple
-Newtown Pippin Apple
-Jonathan Apple
-Prairie Spy Apple
-Nickajack Apple
-King David Apple
-Spitzenburg Apples

The fruit is all picked, the water drained from the irrigation system, grass is mowed (to discourage mice and voles from nesting and eating the bark off the base of the trees, while under the snow). We almost have the place buttoned up for winter, I’m hoping to get a lime sulfur and oil spray on next week if its warm enough (for mildew and mites) then let it snow!

It will be nice to be done with the markets and not driving over the pass every week, though we will miss seeing our friends and customers.
Thanks to all our customers and friends for supporting us! We surely appreciate it and couldn’t do it without you.
See you Saturday.

    Herbert told me that it was your last time last week and I felt sooo bad that I missed you. I am sooo happy to hear that you will be there this weekend. I am hoping that you will bring your gorgeous quinces as I have been waiting for those big ones to prepare some marmalade and all sorts of other things. Big Hugs to both of you!
