So in the 3ish years we’ve been running Concrete Jungle, we’ve picked serviceberries either May 17th or May 23rd. That would lead one to believe that May 20th, 2012, would be a solid time for also picking serviceberries, right? Well, I guess the other lesson to be gleaned from running Concrete Jungle for these years is that every single year has been completely different for fruit schedules. So serviceberries are all gone. As is just about everything else. My bad.
Coincidentally, it turns out the Lucile Ave, the street in southwest Atlanta lined with 40 serviceberry trees, is getting a bus lane put in at Kipp Strive Academy, and several of the best producing trees are going to be bulldozed over unless someone (us) comes and digs them up and replants them. Sounds great right? We’re going to get out there at 10am on Sunday and plop out some trees, and you should join us.
That’s our fruit tree adventure this week. The normal June lull in fruits around Atlanta is setting in early, so please forgive the lack of pickings this week. We’ll do our best to keep on top of it and get bellies full of berries soon again.
We should be able to take care of all the tools necessary, so just bring some sunscreen, a good hat, and maybe a musical instrument. See yall out there!
