Week 13, U Pick, Oct 11-14

Hi apple fans, wow! last weekend was a doozie! We were really packing you in and i realize that parking and the limited toilet facilities are a hassel so i really appreciate your understanding with both of those.

This week there are still huge amounts of the Boskoop (pictured) and Northern Spy and Jonagold apples as well as a fair amount of Winter Mac, Calville Blanc and Melrose. The new addition for this week will be Braeburn.

Now is the time to stock up on storage apples! The Boskoop, Melrose and N. Spy are all great storage varieties. These were common varieties used for storage for the culinary industry before the advent of modern controlled atmosphere storage so they keep very well in just normal refrigerated conditions. Before i had a large cooler i used to store my Melrose in bins outside in the shed for 2 months. They were great!

Update on closing time……….. Our last weekend of operation will be October 18-21. After that the farm will be closed, whew!
