SLPS has 20 fruit and nuts trees, with lots of variety. Apple, plum, peach, pears, nectarine, apple, almond, and apricot! Blueberry bushes, Oregon grape, and concord grape as well as strawberries abound. ┬áThe apricots and Oregon grape came in and have been pick off one tree, ready to be made into homemade jam. SLPS has a long tradition of jamming it’s fruits, but sometimes so many come in that the trees have to be propped for support!

The society garden is growing strong! A month and a half of growing and many of the plants have bushed, vined, and stalked. Only a couple were lost, one cucumber, one corn, one pepper plant, and some onions. All in all, not so bad! The loss mainly may be due to the gophers or bad starters.

Peppers are coming in, vines on the watermelons and pumpkins have taken off, lettuce is growing high, squash is bushing, corn stalks are about 2 feet high and already show tassels, and onions are getting thick. The society is blessed with many plants and few pests!
