"X" MARKS THE SPOT


"X" marks the spot, one customer at a time, frequent hand sanitizing, stay home if you are sick, wear a mask.   We all know the routine by now.  For those of us who have not been personally touched by the virus, I am  thankful that others are keeping us safe.  THANK YOU  for following these guidelines:

          1.     Stay home if you are sick.
          2.     Observe 6 feet physical distancing
          3.     Frequent hand sanitizing.
          4.     Wear a face covering.
          5.     Always wash your fruits and veggies.
          6.     Stand behind the plexiglass, we  will serve you.
      At this point  produce is sparse, If you are interested, please text me ahead to see if I have a supply.  916-300-0720  Due to telemarketers I do not answer unrecognized phone calls. So please  TEXT.
         The mulberries are starting to mature.  We are picking a few and they are available occasionally in the farm stand.  Call to make sure.
          Spring Rose is our first peach of the year.  As a white peach, it is low acid.  As a white peach it can be eaten firm or a little soft. As a white peach it is delicate.  As a early white peach it is just an early peach.  Later peaches will get more of everything we desire in a peach.  Call if you want us to reserve any for you.
         All around the neighborhood we see little orange loquat ripening on landscape trees.  Our loquat, on the other hand, are taking their time.  They are just hinting at some color.
        In the citrus department we have large lemons, yellow grapefruit and Valencia oranges.
        Hoshigaki is available at the farm stand and through mail order while the weather is cool.  For mail order please go to the  order form
       We have honey from Nastase Honey farm in Lincoln, Otow Calendula salve and lip balm, and jams from The Good Stuff.
          

I went out (May 19) to take pictures of ripening fruit but got distracted by a dramatic gallery of cloud pictures.  Happily, we did not get hail this time around.

  
These green plums and peaches will be mature and ready to eat in 6 weeks.

       Thank you to the many people who inquired about ume.  I wish we had enough for everyone, but it was not to be this year.  If you would like to be notified next year when the crop comes in, please let us know.  email:  otoworchard@yahoo.com

        Thank you to the many customers old and new who have called asking when we will open.  At this time, we are asking people to text me to make an order or appointment.  916-300-0720  Due to telemarketers I do not answer unrecognized phone calls. So please  TEXT.  When we hear the land line ringing we will answer, (even if it is a telemarketer).  Land line number is 916-791-1656.
