Well, we are recovering from the intense hail storm that hit us earlier this month. It is amazing to see how the squash and pumpkin plants have sent up new growth to compensate for the leaves slashed by the hail. The apples are having more difficulty, but, hey, it will be a season of a HAIL SALE. Amazing bargains will be happening here at Heath Orchard. When given hail, we will make cider, apple sauce, pies, crisps and, the more hardy of us, will just cut off the hail dents and eat the delicious, if imperfect, fruit!
Summer apples will be coming soon. Vista Bellas, Melba, Yellow Transparents, Duchess should be available on our opening weekend of August 7/8/9. More updates on that as the date gets closer.
