The Bigfork Eagle reports that…
With the apex of cherry season just weeks away, cherry growers along Flathead Lake are taking stock of the fruit on their trees and picking the varieties that ripen early.
“So far this year the weather has been cooperating,” said Bruce Johnson, president of the Flathead Lake Cherry Growers Association. “We’ve been pretty dry for two weeks now, and this is the time period where we don’t want any rainstorms.”
We have a friend in Portland who has beautiful wildlife photography for sale. We thought that our North Fork friends might like to take a look. Check out Scott Shuey Photography at scottshueyphotography.com.
Just got an email from Linda Wernick and they are looking forward to seeing everyone the day after tomorrow, this Wednesday, the 18th, at noon at Sondreson Hall. The FireWise program begins at 9:30, and the Market will set up out in the parking lot at noon – be prepared to see an almost full parking lot, and you may have to park on the road and walk in.
In her email, Linda said they would have “lettuce, spinach, kale, chard, green onions, cucumbers, summer squash, green beans, and some raspberries and geraniums.”
If you plan on staying for the InterLocal which begins at 1:00, be sure to bring a cooler so your fresh produce can withstand the afternoon heat.
