August Harvest: Organic Apples, Produce, and Heirloom Fruits

Welcome, Paula! (Reds, that is!)  Now picking certified organic, fresh and zesty Paula Reds.  These early, nicely sweet-tart apples are great eating out-of-hand and for packing in your back-to-school lunch (sorry, too soon).

Blueberries are finished until next year, but we’re excited about the many different apple and pear varieties on the way–  sweet corn and tomatoes now at market and at the farmstand.

Orchardist’s Report: Ready for harvest this week are heirlooms such as Green Gravenstein apples, Clapp’s Favorite pears, and the unusual cherry plum– cult followers be advised.

Organic cherry plums, this heirloom variety is a favorite of ours.
