March/April 2018

Now that the days are getting longer and the average temperatures are beginning to rise we see the flowers that will soon turn in to fruit and be ready to harvest this coming summer. We are seeing lots of bloom on our trees now,

and that forecasts a good harvest this summer.

But there is fruit to enjoy in these last few weeks of Winter

and the first few weeks of Spring.

Check out what fruits that are Ripe for the Pickin’!
