Less-Fruit Year

Given the hit the area took in terms of frozen out strawberries, blueberrries and peaches, I'm not particularly surprised at the lack of apples in the area. Lipe's says all their apples were frozen off this year and I didn't see anyone selling them at the Murdale Farmer's Market last Saturday. Lightfoot had Golden Delicious and Jonathons at the downtown Farmer's Market but last Wednesday was the last date of the season for it.

If you want to make the trek to Alto Pass, Rendleman's has Jonathons, Golden Delicious and Galas this week.


I feel very bad for our fruit growers. We are very fortunate to live in an area with such a wide variety of high quality fruit. We love being able to get fresh fruit locally. I hope that they will be able to make it through the year.
