Our u-pick season is coming to an end, and Saturday, August 22, will be our last day that we are open.
Saturday is also the day that I am hoping our sour cherries will be ready! We only have two rows, and those are not long or full, so picking will be even more limited than our honeyberry (haskap) picking was early in the season. I already know that demand for them is high and so it will have to be a ‘first come, first served’ situation. I am so impatient for our new young cherry plants to start producing! Next year?
For those of you still wanting saskatoons, our u-pick is still open for now, and we plan to be running the machine harvester down some rows so that there will be pre-picked available for you.
It’s been a good year in spite of the fruit not being very abundant, and we are so grateful for the privilege of living out here. If you haven’t been to our farm yet, please take the opportunity in these last few days to visit us. You can wander the greenhouse (and possibly pick some tomatoes), say “Hello” to our chickens and horses, relax around the playground area, and have a good time!
