Fresh for October 17, 2020

Hello-

No mistaking it, Autumn is here for sure. We received about two inches of rain since last weekend, which is quite a bit for over here. The ground and everything else sorely appreciates it, it was dry. And snow a couple thousand feet above us, Winter not far off.

A few new additions to our apple selection this week: Spartan, another McIntosh cross. Nicajack, Spitzenburg and Newtown Pippin, the latter two reputed to be Thomas Jeffersons favorite apples. They’re all good, multi-purpose fruit. The Pippins are exceptional keepers, getting better as the Winter wears on.
