Obviously, summer isn’t here yet, but with the blossoms just starting to appear on our saskatoons, I can’t help but get excited for summer and start thinking ahead. This spring we have planted some Valentine Cherries that should produce fruit this summer, and Juliet Cherries that will need some time to grow. We’ve also added more Chinook raspberry canes (which came with previous growth so we are expecting them to produce this year), and a variety of strawberries, with the majority being Kent. If all goes well, we will also have a variety of fresh vegetables, such as tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, and potatoes!
I know many people guard their saskatoons jealously over the winter months, not willing to use them up too quickly. Rest assured, we have lots of frozen saskatoons from last year’s harvest that work great in your favourite recipes. Send an email or call if you would like to purchase some of these while you wait for the new harvest.
