What purple fruits are in season right now? Mulberries, Saskatoons, black raspberries,… at least that’s what I have. Haskaps, blackberries, black currants, blueberries, hardy purple kiwifruit, European plums, and elderberries are the other hardy purple fruits I can think of. More pickings are to be had so contact me to get your purple on (remember to dress in purple).
A few of us are gathering at the end of next Wednesday’s Clarksburg Farmer’s Market (July 17th at 6pm) to go for a tour of the newly-established Beaver Valley Community Garden at the school grounds. Learn about the story behind the garden, the plants, and stick around to help weed and for a treat.
Braided garlic, sweet Jerusalem artichoke roots, ready-to-fruit mushroom logs, and hardy Persian walnut tree seedlings will be abundant in the autumn. Stay tuned or contact Ivan if you’re interested in learning more.
