Maturing apples, early July

I will be speaking at White Square Fine Arts and Books, 86 Cottage Street, Easthampton, Massachusetts, Sunday, August 11 at 2 p.m. My topics will include early apple growing in New England; heirloom varieties; John Chapman, aka Johnny Appleseed (few people realize that he grew up in western Massachusetts); and what to expect from the 2013 fresh harvest.

The event takes place during the opening weekend of Park Hill Orchard’s Art in the Orchard.

I have two events scheduled for early October, at the Cheshire, Connecticut, Public Library Thursday, October 3, at 7 p.m., and the Keep Homestead Museum in Monson, Massachusetts, Sunday, October 6, at 1 p.m. Details to follow.

  1. The Connecticut commission appointed by the Governor reports that by 2100 much of the CT shoreline will be covered by Long Island Sound; and the apple crop by then will have suffered significant damage. As Movers and Shakers of the Apple Growers Assn., what do you and Bar intend to do about it??


    • Should that scenario come to pass, it will be a sad day for all of us, not just apple growers. In the meantime, we will continue to encourage citizens around the globe to curb their appetite for fossil fuel, and support efforts to develop alternative sources of energy.
