March and April Hours

 It has been a dry winter and we are already moving into spring.
 Our fruit stand hours for March and April are:
         Tu, Wed, Th  11:30 to 1:30  pm
         Fri, Sat, Sun   10:00 to 6:00 pm
                Closed on Mondays
We will return to our regular hours on May 1st.
 At the fruit stand we are now selling: navel oranges, blood oranges, grapefruit, hoshigaki, dehydrated fruit, beeswax candles, and jam  .
We planted peach, plum, jujube, ume, mulberry, persimmon, apple, and cherry trees.  It will be at least three years before they come into production.  The pruning is almost finished and we are working on tweaking our irrigation in hopes of  reducing our water use. 

The orchard is in bloom.  This is a great time to see the pink and white blossoms. By the end of March the blossoms will be replaced by tiny immature fruit vulnerable to freezing temperatures and hail storms. We just have to wait to see what summer brings.
