Well, the last few days have given us some hints of spring, so we remain hopeful that a good spring (slow thaws and no freezing temperatures) is still coming. Saturday we finished trimming all of the white Niagara grapes–which took us almost 3 full months. Now we start back through the rows to tie the grape vines onto the trellis system for optimum growth.
We completed one spring project this past week of getting the straw spread on our strawberry fields, it felt good to check off one thing on the long project list. It was actually nice just to see the strawberry plants again with the snow gone!
Corey Lake Orchards is one of the sponsors for this year’s Rivers of Justice Film Festival. If you have never been to the Riviera Theatre, this would be a great time to go and see this magnificent theatre. Also, our bakery is supplying apple pie for the reception and the potluck dinner–so if you have been craving our pie–this is another good reason to go.
We have put information about this local event below. So on behalf of all of us at Corey Lake Orchards, we thank you for buying local and look forward to seeing you when we open.
