Blossom season was over for us by mid-May, which is remarkably early. Usually, we'd expect to see the trees in bloom until the end of the month.
We are busily trying to keep up with the demands of what is now a 3,000 tree orchard -- one that is growing at an incredible rate. Ah, spring!
Salt Spring Apple Company is working on something special, harkening back to Salt Spring's heyday as the foremost supplier of fresh apples to Western Canada.
On our modest little five acre property, we're growing an amazing range of fabulous organic apple varieties. Our goal is to take advantage of all that organic growers have learned in the past century about skillfully growing delicious, nutritious apples and doing so in harmony with the planet.
We're young and growing, or at least our apples are. In good time, you'll see our wonderful apples and related products for sale on Salt Spring, in Victoria and at a farmers' market near you.
