July 2013 is berry season: we’re harvesting lots and lots of goumi berries, red raspberries, ivory white hunza mulberries, purple illinois everbearing mulberries, marrion berries, tay berries and native trailing blackberries. The pie cherries are just about ready. The robins are eating lots of all the berries that aren’t netted so i’ve made the habit of eating some of the robins!, (oops am i supposed to admit this in public?).
The marrion berries are so amazingly vigorous, productive, large-fruiting and amazingly florally-fragrant that i’m really going to re-focus propagation effort on them.
We’re starting to include fruit and berries in the weekly box program and over time the proportion of perennial products will increase.
As of now, July 2013 Magdalene has 2 or 3 spaces available in the weekly box program. call or email if you’re interested
