Harvest is Coming!!!

What a strange year!  Or maybe nothing is strange anymore.  Hit 80 in March , orchard began blooming three weeks early, and then hard freeze Mothers" Day.  We lost about 30% of the blossoms I think so harvest will be low this year.  And then rain, and rain, and more rain.  We needed it, still need more, but it's wrecked havoc with disease in the orchard.  But, I'm still loking forward to harvest.  The Beacons are probably 2-3 weeks from fully ripe and then by late September or early October it will be hard to pick everything that's ripe.  Pray that we have a good fall-frost is ok but no hard freeze until November please.
