Upick gates open Sat 082722 @ 9 am

3803 Wynola Road UPick 2021 Ken s pre UPick notes 080921


When the last pickers had left here in late September 2021, we had a few apples with the last of the crop to find good homes. After pruning from January to April, weeding and spreading compost, we re in the final stretch to bring in 2022 s harvest for you, the pickers! This my third year owning the orchard was the year I finally got to prune for shape, of course removing unthrifty rank sucker growth, favoring mature growth, enabling picking from those branches. Thinning is almost complete. Now watering the trees takes center stage.

Apples are noticeably gaining in size with each passing week of high temperatures in the 90 s, Gravensteins are the first on site to mature, with some Red and Golden Delicious following close behind. With little more than two months until the first pickers enter the gates, we re certain that the apples will perform as they always have, with fewer, larger fruit than last year to please palates.
