Orchard Update from Al

Hi all,

Just wanted to let you know that I heard from Al over the weekend.  The orchard is slowly awakening and the early plums about to burst into bloom.  Al is waiting a couple more weeks for apple buds to further develop before he can estimate the amount of fruit the orchard might yield this year, so it looks like we won’t have more details available for you regarding share availability and price until early May. Stay tuned!

In the meantime, Al sends this update and photos:

My orchard is slowly awakening. The violets are more plentiful every day, the apricots are ready to burst, yellow plums are right behind them, the apples – will be a couple of weeks and so will be the pears and the rest of the late plums.


April 8th Update

Hi all,

The sun is shining and it feels like spring here!

Just a quick note to let you know that we’re working to confirm the fruit amounts available this year so we can know the number of shares we have to sell, and the composition and cost of each.  Hopefully within a week or so we can let you know the details and start signing folks up!

If you were a member of last year’s CSA or are already on the waitlist, you’ll receive an email with all the details.  If you’d like to be added to the waitlist, contact us.  All info will also be posted on this site as it is available.

Thanks, and happy spring!

-Kristi, for Tinka Orchard CSA
