Fruit Shares Week 14

Our fruit shares this week are almost completely Canadian! Even mostly Ontario: we have cantaloupe and apples grown by us, peaches and concord grapes grown in Niagara, BC plums and a couple grapefruits (U.S.)

All tomatoes are still going strong! Look for roma and campari tomatoes in our farm store.

Apple season is beginning: We begin with golden delicious apples. This variety has some spots and blemishes this season. We do our best to stay on top of pests organically, and while these apples aren’t perfect, I think you will find them to be quite delicious and nice inside. If your are not happy with the apples you received, let me know and I will replace them. We have also been testing the honeycrisp apples- they look so tempting but are still very tart. They will be nicer after a frost or even just a cooler night. We hope you are all able to enjoy some apples from our farm this season- you can really taste the difference of local and organic. 

The honeycrisp apples are looking tempting, but aren’t ready quite yet.

Have a happy, healthy week!
