Fall Crop of Apples

October 11th, 2013

Picking the last of the Fall apple varieties from my garden.  I have a bucketful of “Fiesta” apples, a nice crisp and tart variety that tastes similar to MN Landscape Arboretum developed, “Honeycrisp.”  They ripen later in the season and are one of the last of my crops to harvest, as the gardening season comes to a close in Minneapolis.  The ground cover seen in the photo underneath all my apples tress is the carpet of  fraise des bois  or alpine strawberry.

Dr. Bashioum’s Garden: Golden Raspberries

August 10th, 2013

Just as I predicted last week, the golden raspberries are ripe now and ready for a bowl of cereal and milk. Unlike the black raspberries, they are not well suited for making into jam. I usually pick a bowlful to share, while eating my weight in them while I’m still in the garden! Like all fruit, the sun does most of the work.
