It’s been quite a while since I’ve posted anything new, other than adding the recipe section, so I apologize for that. The saskatoon picking is getting to its prime time, with clusters of ripe saskatoons hanging for you to pick. There are definitely less of them this year, but at least we’ve missed the early frosts and hail storms (at least so far!)
Our other ventures are taking time to get going. The raspberries look to be on the cusp of being ready, and some saskatoon pickers have been able to snag a few of them in addition to their saskatoons. The strawberries are still just ripening a few at a time, but I promise to post a notice if that changes–I really want to be able to provide them for you! Sour cherries are likely another week or more from being ready as well. As for our vegetables, the cucumbers have been selling all week, and there are more on the way, but not in huge amounts. They are also the English Burpless variety, which are not generally used for pickling, just for gracing your table ‘as is’. The peppers and tomatoes are developing, along with the zucchini and potatoes. I imagine those will be late August before anything is ready.
I’ve sure enjoyed all the guests we’ve been having! It’s nice to see everyone enjoying the country air and the relaxed atmosphere; sharing a picnic lunch while the kids play, and engaging in the time-honoured tradition of berry picking.
