Summer means hot temps and fruit, fruit, fruit.
Here on the urban homestead we are harvesting grapes, apples, peaches, blueberries (have a whole ziplock bagful!) and strawberries.
Ripening soon will be figs and elderberries.
For some reason, don’t know if it has to do with the weather but the clusters of grapes contain semi ripe, ripe and even a few “raisin” grapes. Rather than wait till the whole cluster ripened we went ahead a picked them anyway.
In a few months we’ll be dealing with pomegranates, guavas and citrus.
Stay tuned for what’ll we be bakin’ and preservin’ with these homegrown delights.
