Active end of the season

Post  johnp on 8/12/2014, 4:10 pm

Talked to my friend up the street that has a you pick apple orchard and pumpkin patch. He is going to open the 22nd of this month with Galas and McIntosh ready. He is going to the western slope on the 19th with a trailer for the really good peaches. I put in my order for 2 boxes so we will be canning and freezing a bunch. He also wants me to supply him cuc's, eggplant, peppers and kale for their little store. Should not be a problem supplying most everything for a few weeks anyway. The other local u pick orchard has those big plums ( I forget what kind) so he said he would save me one box. Going to need some more jars. Very Happy  Very Happy

I feel in love with peaches this year, but even at the farm store they're at $2.99/lb. I keep waiting for the $1.99 specials for little boxes of 6 and I'm not seeing them. Maybe it's still early.

Wow. Are they organic? I don't typically worry about that if I'm buying local and I ask about pesticide use, but from a big grocery store it's hard to know whether roundup has been used. We avoid using that in our gardens, so I avoid buying it.

Lol, of course they're not organic. Round-up is an herbicid and is not used on peaches.

The peaches we get have red in their name but I can't remember the rest of the name. I am pretty sure they are fertilized and sprayed with chemicals like most orchards are. My friends who are getting them are related to the growers over there so I don't worry about the source.

On a side note the little store they have for their apples, honey, peaches etc. opens four days a week. I hope to sell enough to pay the irrigation bill for the entire year by putting my stuff in the store. The one thing I messed up was planting the second crop of beets soon enough. They won't be ready until the very end of the season. Oh BTW the entire bill for the whole year is $78.00

I was going to post a picture of the store but evidently the web page cannot be found. Very frustrating.
