Saturday, June 15th will be remembered as one of the best parties I have been to in a long time. I celebrated the oldest Co-operative in Ontario's 100th anniversary with over 1000 people, including the Premier of Ontario.
Usually, this time of year, we wish the rain would go away so we can get some work done, but this year we are very dry already and this rain is very much needed. The rain currently is the prefect type for a deep watering of plants.
I wish I could post the smell of being surrounded by billions of tiny flowers! This is the time of year where most fruit farms look like they grow flowers not great tasting fruit. The bloom set looks great and we expect a normal yield this year.
Last year was not a normal year at all for us. With record breaking March temperatures, the trees woke from their winter slumber with a great show of colour and our apricots were in full bloom by March 28th 2012.
