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.
