Rain and Ruby Jon

The first fall rain has arrived giving us farmers a very welcomed sign that fall is here, and that we may actually make it through summer. The rain has always been somewhat of a refresher for our souls after a summer of hard work.
We love entering fall and getting to welcome you all out to the orchard. This week we have added Ruby Jon to our Ripe and Ready list. Ruby Jon is a beautiful bright red apple with a crisp white flesh. These are our favorites for applesauce! If you leave a little peel on, the applesauce will have a fun pink color!

Pears and Prunes!

We have all three varieties of pears ready at the stand! They are Bosc, d'Anjou, and Bartlett and are all ready for we-pick at $9 for a small bucket.
The d'Anjou need 2-3 weeks in the fridge to ripen properly and the other two do not need the extra care. We have found that the d'Anjou turn out just perfect with this added fridge time. Have you all found the same to be true?
We also have our Brooks Prunes at the stand ready for we-pick at $1.25 per pound.

Honeycrisp, Jonagold, and Ruby Mac Update

The Honeycrisp are now all ready! We have opened all of our rows and they are going fast! 
We are opening our first rows of Jonagold and Ruby Mac today as well. Our first row of Ruby Mac is on a new row we planted out by the tomatoes. Young trees ripen a little faster than older  trees, so hit this new row before the main older row of Ruby Mac. Our attendant will help show you the way! Ruby Mac are a great sweet tart apple that is great for applesauce, pies, and snacking on too. For anyone looking for a Macintosh apple, these are part Macintosh!
Tomatoes are still going strong and we still have some Bell Peppers left and tons of Jalapenos too!
Pumpkins will be ready shortly as well!
