July 16, 2008 – Fruit on the Verge

While the cherries are still hanging on, the next batch of fruit is getting ready.

The peaches are very plentiful – we’ve been culling a lot fruit off the trees to keep the branches from breaking.


The blackberries are in the third year and lookng extremely good this year.

  1. In the Willamette Valley in Oregon blackberries, raspberries and strawberries grow in all the ditches and are considered weeds.
    We have large quantities of the loganberry, the youngberry, the boysenberry, the olallieberry, the Santiam, the Chehalem, and the Marion.
    Lots of jams at all the farmers markets and roadside stands. 🙂

    Two of my fellow Iowans In Oregon are from Ames. One goes to the Unitarian Fellowship and you may know him- Roger Hammond. The other one randomly gave me one of your medium gift boxes that he received back at Christmas but apparently didn’t want.
    The honey is amazing. Such quality after buying bulk-packaged honey. And the goats milk soap smells wonderful. I don’t think he realized I read your blog, so his trash is my treasure!
