July 2013 Purple Fruits, Beaver Valley Community Garden Tour

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.

  2. Purple is passion! Nice Pleurotus fruiting, Ivan. I think we will be away on the 17th (hopefully chillin’ on Tiny Beach) so will miss the garden tour, but I will be sure to check it out next time I’m in Thornbury. Peace.
