Orchard Update – September 2016 Harvests
Apple Harvest
[av_textblock size=” font_color=” color=”] Summer has quickly turned to Autumn at the Blush Lane Organic Orchard. The cool nights are great for bringing out a deep red blush and sealing in the sweetness of our mid-Autumn apples.

Crisp, classic McIntosh, juicy and ever-popular Honeycrisp and delightful green Shamrock apples are ready now.

Our last variety of peaches, O’Henry, have been harvested. Enjoy them while they last!

Alberta and BC root vegetables and winter squash harvests have begun. It’s definitely feeling like the season for root vegetable stews and soups.
