Traditionally, June is a bit of a quiet month…mulberries and serviceberries are pretty much gone, and lots of other things are still fattening up. While things have definitely been quiet around here, we’ve discovered a lot of exciting things on the horizon.
The first is that, by all accounts, this is going to be an absolute bumper crop of a year for fruit. Every fruit tree I can think of is well laden. We’re going to be working hard. We’ve added over 30 new points to the food map since the end of last year and the ability to filter out specific fruits on the map, so hopefully you can find something tasty for yourself.
The second is that for as long as we’ve been picking fruit in this city, we keep discovering new things, like plums, nectarines, blueberries, and cherries. We’ve got a small pick scheduled for this Sunday, 4th of July to try to get some of these in-betweeners. Nothing too time-consuming, and we’ve all probably got plans later on in the day anyways.
