Thursday, December 10, 2015: Unseasonable Warm Thru the Weekend! Popcorn on the ear, many kinds of apples for fresh eating and baking, and red, white, and yellow potatoes!

While NOAA is pushing the unusual December warm spell off until this weekend, today looks like it will be almost as warm along with possibly some sun.  Tomorrow, right now it looks beautiful with sunshine likely.  Keep in mind next week’s weather will be closer to normal which means temperatures mostly in the 30s will be likely. Keep in mind that while the weather for the foreseeable future will be OK for us opening our stand, we are running low on apples, squash and potatoes so we will have to close soon even if the weather continues unusually mild for the rest of December..   09Dec2015 Record Temps Possible

What we will be having today:

Lots of different APPLES! Honeycrisp, Fuji, Jonagold, Northern Spy, Idared, Granny Smith, Roman Beauty, Blushing Golden, Splendor, Calville Blanc, Surprise, Red Gold, Northwest Greening, Red Delicious, Golden Delicious, Crispin/Mutsu, Empire, Jonathan, Hawaii, Kandil Sinap, and King David.

REMEMBER you can mix and match any apples for only $4 a 2-qt box or $10 a 1/2 bushel!

AND OUR HONEYCRISP are so delicious right now! (We have one every day, they are so good!) Honeycrisp are $5 a 2-qt box, larger quantities while supplies last.

WE ALSO HAVE WINTER SQUASH: Buttercup (sweet and rich and can be substituted for pumpkin puree for your pumpkin pies!), Heart of Gold (a sweet dumpling hybrid), and Celebration (an acorn hybrid that is much sweeter than your normal green acorn). KEEP IN MIND that winter squash only get sweeter the longer they sit around. Their starches continue to turn to sugar and is one of the reasons why some squash can be stored well into the winter months. They are only 50 cents each/ 5 for $2 right now or if you are looking for larger quantities they are $7 a half bushel.

Popcorn: By Christmas our popcorn on the ear should be ready to pop! See this link HERE for an interesting article on Michigan popcorn.

FRESHLY DUG POTATOES: Red Norland potatoes (red skin with white flesh): We have them in quarts, quarter pecks, 1/2 pecks, and 1/2 bushels. The 1/2 bushels are only $10 each or $18 a bushel. Kennecbec (white skin, white flesh) are $6 a peck backet. Yukon Gold (yellow skin, gold flesh) are $6 a 1/2 peck.

Wednesday, December 9, 2015: Freshly dug potatoes, excellent winter storage apples for eating and cooking, and more!

It is already in the upper 40s this morning and it looks like it will get into the 50s with hopefully some sunshine this afternoon. Even warmer air is headed here for the weekend although by late Saturday it looks like we will have rain.

While it looks like it will be warm enough for us to be open until Christmas eve, if sales keep up at their relatively brisk pace, we will have to close before then since we are starting to run low on produce.  For instance, if we would put all of our remaining apples into our small cooler today we would still have room for more.

Monday, December 7, 2015: Another Mild But Foggy Morning

The mild December weather continues.  Right now it looks like the weekend will be even warmer, perhaps rising to near 60F.  The light winds and moist air AND these being the longest nights of the year, all go into having foggy mornings.  Yesterday the fog rose in late morning forming low clouds which finally dissipated in the late afternoon allowing the sun to finally break thru.  Something like this will likely take place again today.  Winds the rest of the week will likely keep the fog formation down although there is a chance for a few showers.

Notice: We will not be opening tomorrow, Tuesday, December 8, because of the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary, a Holy Day of Obligation. We will keep our doors closed that day, but will be open again the following day and the rest of the week.

Saturday, December 5, 2015: Finished Digging Our Potatoes Yesterday! Forecast the next week: Above Normal Temperatures Until Next Weekend THEN Believe it or not, even warmer air moving in!

First off, I wanted to alert everyone that my daughter Bernadette’s artwork is up for sale at the Artsplace in Fremont, MI, located at 13 E. Main in downtown. I think her gourd art, such as birdhouses and Christmas tree ornaments, would make fantastic Christmas gifts!

Gourd Display Gourd Ornament New-Building-e1410372731625

Yesterday we dug our Kennebec potatoes and then finished digging our Yukon Gold and Red potatoes. We will have them up for sale today.  The much above normal temperatures look to continue as far as one can see!  While it is cloudy as I write this around 9AM, the sun is expected to come out before noon.  As I mentioned in the blog’s title, while this weekend will be quite mild for December, there is a possibility that next weekend will be even warmer, although the chance of rain next weekend is pretty good.  Keep in mind if you are passing by feel free to stop and pick up free apple samples of Mutsu/Crispin, REde Delicious and Jonagold.

Friday, December 4, 2015: We Will Be Digging Kennebec and Yukon Gold Potatoes This Afternoon!

I mentioned in an earlier blog post about the possibility that this winter will be the mildest on record.  Perusing the Internet yesterday I discovered that I am no longer alone in voicing this possibility.  While the future always looks cloudier the farther out you go, the near future (10 days out) does look to be unseasonably warm.  However, next week while it should be relatively mild, it does look like the relative warmth will come with more clouds and rain than we have experienced the last two weeks.

Today we will be digging more potatoes specifically our Kennebec’s and the rest of our Yukon Gold.  We will have these freshly dug potatoes for sale tomorrow and next week.

Feel free to stop and pick up free apple samples of Red Delicious, Mutsu/Crispin and Jonagold. Other goodies include:

Thursday, December 3, 2015: The first day of an extended period of “Injun Fall” with bright sunny skies and mild (for December) temperatures!

Golden Delicious by the half bushel

Golden Delicious by the half bushel

Three weeks from today is Christmas Eve!  Today is the third of December and meteorologicaly December is a winter month and, yet, the next two weeks will seem more like fall than winter!  I used the official Creative License to call the next week or so “Injun Fall” since, except for shorter days, it will look and feel more like fall than winter! Looking at the latest Pacific equatorial water temperatures, the El Nino appears to, almost unbelievably, continue to strengthen!  The strongest El Nino measured was in 1997 but now this year the El Nino isn’t only stronger but is strengthening unlike in 1997 it had peeked in early December and started spiraling down quickly!  Interesting . . .

Wednesday, December 2, 2015: Showers likely today then a long, beautiful stretch of mild, sunny December weather! Also, beautiful, excellent quality HoneyCrisp apples for sale today!

First keep in mind we will be open today and everyday this week from 10AM to 5PM!  Also, we still have free apple samples available of Mutsu (Crispin), Jonagold and Red Delicious. Plus, our HoneyCrisp are still just as sweet and crisp and good as ever and are $5 a 2-qt box or only $10 a peck basket! Many other eating and baking apples still available as well!

Why are we still open in December when we have told people we plan on closing the day before Thanksgiving?  It’s the weather–the unusual very mild and sunny weather that we are experiencing this early part of the winter season (December 1 starts the official meteorologic winter season).  While I thought this winter was going to be on the mild side I had little idea that we would be going thru not only pleasantly mild temperatures but copious sunshine as well.  By the way, please look at my December 1st (yesterday’s) blog post for my comments on what I think is the real cause of recent global warming.

Tuesday, December 1, 2015: Rainy but mild temperatures. Global Warming–Is it carbon dioxide or simply a hotter sun!

Just looked at the water temperatures of the equatorial Pacific and to me it looks like the El Nino is actually strengthening!  This usually implies, when this happens in December, an unusually mild December as well as increasing the chances for a warmer than normal January.  What makes me think this may be a record or near record warm winter is that NASA and NOAA have stated that it looks like worldwide the average temperatures have set records for the last 6 months in a row.  This implies that when a strong El Nino forms when the globe as a whole sets record temperatures those areas of North America which are much warmer than normal (northern US and much of Canada) may likely set records.  However, the caveat here is one has to have confidence that those in NASA and NOAA are correct in their estimation of the temperatures records being set the last 6 months.  There is some dispute to this but we shall see what takes place.

While very few people today deny global warming (there are still some real diehards out there) the problem is assuming where it is coming from.  Of course we hear man is causing this because of Carbon Dioxide emissions.  What hasn’t been touched on (at least by the press and many politicians) is the sun itself.  Since 1990 the sun has grown measurably hotter which can easily account for the increase in worldwide temperature.  No matter how much money you spend you can’t reduce the temperature of the sun!!!  Here is a link to an article, along with actual measurements of the solar constant.  Take a look at this before jumping on the C02 bandwagon!

Monday, November 30, 2015: A week of mostly delightful early December weather! Ideal weather for stocking up on apples, squash and potatoes! Apples, potatoes, winter squash, and garlic! Keep in mind our free apple samples!

While December looks to be warmer and drier than normal, one never knows for sure.  Right now except for Tuesday and Wednesday, the weather this week looks delightful for December.  Keep in mind however, days are about as short as they ever get!  As you can tell from the photo below which was taken yesterday at Pickerel Lake, no ice has yet formed.  While Pickerel Lake doesn’t usually freeze up completely normally until around Christmas, we haven’t yet seen any skim ice near our shore, which is very, very unusual. Because of the mild weather and lack of snow, we are able to stay open this year later than usual.  Of course, good crops of apples and potatoes (we are running real low on squash) is even more important for us to be open this late.  If you are just passing by feel free to pick up free apple samples of Crispin, Jonagold and Red Delicious.  NO PURCHASE NECESSARY!100_0983
