The first piece of fruit picked in 2015!
After a 239 day hiatus, the harvest has officially begun! Our first harvest this year came 12 days earlier than our first harvest last year and resulted in 30 pounds of delicious Bing Cherries donated to the El Centro Food Bank (I do have to admit, I couldn’t resist treating myself to a few as well.) Since that first donation on June 15th, we have harvested more cherries, transparent apples, and even some red plums! The warm weather didn’t give us much time to ease into harvest season which is ok by me as I’ve been antsy to get back out and celebrate the diverse and bountiful urban orchard we have in Seattle from the vantage point of my orchard ladder.
If you have not yet authorized your tree for the 2015 City Fruit harvest, please do so early so we can properly plan and prepare. Feel free to email me to opt-in or with any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
