Summer 2014

July 18, 2014

After a very busy, cold spring, 2014 is turning into a good year for fruit growers (and eaters!) in Colorado.  April brought at least 9 nights of cold temperatures with wind machines running to keep cold air from settling on the trees.  We were also busy this spring planting new blocks of sweet cherries, peaches, and table grapes.  Seeing those seedlings turn into trees reflects our hope for the future here at Osito Orchard.  Grow baby, grow!  We’ve just had our first tastes of harvest; a few lucky folks got some Bing & Rainier cherries in late June, and we picked red currants this week.  But the big excitement of harvest is just about to jump out into center stage.  Our peaches will be ready by early August, with lots of apples following right behind.  Let us know if you’d like to be on our contact list for bulk fruit orders, and we’ll get back to you ASAP!
