THOMPSON'S FARM


WE PLAN TO OPEN THE MARKET ON JUNE  1

CHERRY HARVEST USUALLY BEGINS IN LATE JUNE

SO FAR OUR CROPS LOOK GREAT.  WE HAVE BEEN LUCKY WITH THE SPRING FROST AND IF THERE IS A PROBLEM AT ALL IT IS THAT WE MAY HAVE TOO MUCH FRUIT.  WE WILL PAY PLENTY TO THIN THE PEACHES, APRICOTS,  PLUMS AND APPLES.  FARMERS ALWAYS HAVE SOMETHING TO WHINE ABOUT.  CHERRIES NEED TO THIN THEMSELVES AND VERY OFTEN THERE IS A  "JUNE DROP" WHERE THE TREE THINS ITSELF.  THIS YEAR THAT WILL BE A GOOD THING. 
WE ALSO NEED A WARM MAY BECAUSE THAT HELPS TO GROW LARGER FRUIT.  IT IS WARM IN THE FORCAST.
