Chilly, rainy morning will turn into a chilly, cloudy day with, it looks like right now, with some peeks at the sun this afternoon. The weather pattern is quite interesting (I truly wish it wasn’t that interesting!) with that super Typhoon sitting just southwest of Alaska in the Pacific. Since it really isn’t moving much, and is such an intense storm, I don’t think anyone or any computer model can make a good forecast for the upcoming 2 weeks. It isn’t behaving like it was figured. I feel this means just about any upcoming weather (of course you can rule out really warm weather here) is possible. Most of the models 10 days ago, which were pretty certain there would be above normal temps over all the country have been replaced with much below temps over nearly the country and the models are again pretty sure of their forecast. In other words, the weather has been really hard to figure out and don’t rely on forecasts more than 3 days in the future right now at least until the strange upper winds become less strange. (Right now it looks like that the flow of weather thru central Canada will switch and will bring Atlantic weather moving thru central Canada instead of weather moving in from the Canadian Rockies )
Whatever the forecast today we will be open until about 5PM but keep in mind we will again be on self-serve most of the day!

We also have started to harvest our Splendor apples which are a very sweet, crisp apple. One reason why I purchased, this rather rare apple, was that I saw it being advertised in fancy gift packs in the Harry and David Catalog. Well, it was a wise purchase since this apple is of high quality and keeps well, although it isn’t exceptionally easy to grow. We also now have limited quantities of Calville Blanc D’Hiver and our Ashmead Kernel apples. These apples are known for their extremely high Vitamin C content–Calville’s have more Vitamin C per ounce than oranges or any other citrus fruit! Ashmead Kernel has a very robust flavor–you really know you are eating something different with tartness, sweetness and flavor in abundance. Calville has the reputation for being the best apple in existence for pies–a few years ago I received a request from a fancy New York restaurant for about 10 bushels of Calville. Too bad we didn’t have much of a crop that year so I couldn’t fulfill that order. This year we do have a fair crop from just a couple trees and is a good year to see if you agree with some that Calville makes the best pies and tarts. Many like to eat it fresh! Because of its super high Vitamin C content, Calville is being used as a genetic source in breeding programs. The main problem with Caville is that it is really hard to get a good crop of nice looking Calville’s! Trust me here! Our Red Delicious this year are outstanding–they are good sized, dark red and crisp, juicy and sweet! If you are a Red Delicious fan you will love these! Keep in mind we have Red Delicious free samples as well as Empire and RedGold, so you can taste them before you buy ‘em. While we have sold RedGold apples in the past, this year they are really outstanding! Sweet, Juicy and full of flavor. Reminder: We now have RedGold free samples!
