Wednesday at the Orchard

It was a really nice day at the orchard today.  I was up early and got my girls to their sitter on time.  Grabbed a cup of coffee and headed back to sort apples for the Waunakee Market in the afternoon. 

Everything was sorted when a couple of fun families stopped by to pick raspberries, stock up on apples, and of course have a good time at the orchard.  It is so nice when people come to the orchard right now – I am not crazy busy in the sorting world or the helping customer world so I actually have the opportunity to chat for a while.  If anyone knows me – I love to chat!

Miscellaneous Updates:

  • Our duck races are currently out of commission but have no fear – Jared has the parts ordered to fix them!
  • The very first of the Wealthy apples have been picked.  They go fast so they’ll be around sporadically – you may want to call ahead to make sure they’re ‘in stock.’
  • The sweet corn we have for sale is locally grown using organic methods and it is DELICIOUS!  Super sweet – no need for butter or anything!
  • I picked a few pears as they were coming off the trees easily.  I put them in the cooler for 24 hours and now have one out hopefully ripening – I’ll keep you all posted on their progress. 
  • Oh – how could I forget – we had a BAT visit us right before Frank left for Waunakee…I know they’re good for mosquitoes but I was still pretty freaked out!
  • I had a lot of fun with gold spray paint that I needed for my Project QUILTING challenge now I will have a gold shelf in the store too.

I think that’s all my update’s for now.  Hope to see everyone at the orchard!
