First Market This Season- July 23, 2011

Mid Summer

We’re two weeks later then most years, but it looks like this weekend will be our first market at the University District Farmers Market (in Seattle) for this season. Its was a cold wet spring and a very cool summer so far, great living weather , but not so good for growing fruits and vegetables. Similar to last year, it rained quite a bit during blossom time which makes it difficult for the bees to get out and pollinate the flowers, so less fruit. And with it being so cool everything is ripening a couple weeks later then normal ( hard to tell what normal is any more, but later then what we’ve been accustomed to).

This week we’ll have Chelan cherries, raspberries, pluots (a cross between an apricot and plum, this particular cross resembles the cot more with some of a plums tartness) , Black currants, sugar snap and snow peas . We don’t have a lot of anything, so I recommend getting to the market early.
