We sell pumpkins, squash, maple syrup and apples at the River Road Ramble on the Hanson Farm on Evergreen Av on Saturday the 28th. In a good year we sell most of the produce. What is left over we sell some and give some to the local food shelves.
Today is apple picking day. The apples are not loaded, so the size is pretty fair. I sprayed them with Sevin 4 times this summer and that seems to have kept the worms all out. The wet spring means that some varieties have apple scab, a cosmetic flaw that makes them hard to sell but does not damage the apple underneath. I would have had to spray them early in the season with a fungicide--but I don't really like doing this as they are really quite potent neuro damaging sprays.
Took a break and a stroll along Wolf Creek at brother Marv's.
