Latest update about Apricot Picking on Sat. July 23

Sheryl McGlochlin - Friday, July 22, 2011

Email me if you want to pick Sat. morning BUT don't go until you hear from me one more time. 

The first tree there were more squished ones on the ground than there were in the tree so we were too late for that one. 

The 2nd tree I wrote down the address wrong OR this house doesn't exist.  I found the street but can't find the property!

In the midst of all this, I did find another loaded apricot tree and went and rang the doorbell.  They will call me tonight to let me know if we can pick this tree. It's the perfect apricot tree - big beautiful apricots!!

If you have a ladder, let me know so you don't have to come to my place first.   I will update this apricot situation as soon as I know more!

Sat. July 23, Picking Apricots - 2 locations on the East Side

Sheryl McGlochlin - Friday, July 22, 2011

I won't be able to be there, so someone who has a truck or a car needs to carry at least one ladder.  I have a few ladders but you'll need to come to my home by 8 am Sat. morning OR Friday and load the ladders, buckets and boxes.  If we don't have anyone who will do this, we will need to wait and pick on another time and day so please let me know if you are able to help. 

We need everyone to be picking for the group, not just for y-ourself.

8:30 am: 

1st stop:

 2161 E. 3380 So. (This address is actually our 3300 So. B Garden, the one w/ chickens, but the apricot tree is across the street).  We have received permission to pick this tree so don't worry. We'll start here, quickly pick everything possible, then move to the 2nd property.

2nd stop: 

2142 E. Atkin Ave. 2830 So. - It's great that these properties are just about 10 blocks from each other.  We need to stay together and work one property at a time. 

When we are done, you can take a bag of apricots for your family but help us get all the extra apricots, buckets, ladders, etc. back to my place.

RSVP for this picking party by emailing me.

We also plan to pick apricots off the ground, even if they are gooey and need to be throw away.

We try to leave the apricot tree area looking clean in exchange for homeowners giving us their fruit.

Picking Apricots on Sat. June 23, Update

Sheryl McGlochlin - Thursday, July 21, 2011

I'll get over to this property today and look at the apricots to make sure they'll be ripe enough for Sat., then I'll update this on the blog.  I'm hoping for 8:30 am Sat. morning if homeowners are fine w/ that.   If you want to participate, email me so I have an idea who all can help.

Let me know if you can bring ladders and buckets.

I need someone to come to Holladay A Garden and pick up a bunch of shallow boxes to put them all in so we don't stack them deep and squish them all.

Remember, you are picking for the whole group as well as yourself so I need some of you to bring apricots back to my place after you've picked.

We have a lot of members who have been doing a lot of serious weeding in some of our largest gardens lately and I want to make sure they get apricots as well.

Just know that this is JUST THE BEGINNING of picking a LOT of fruit trees and harvest for the season.  We will need a great deal of help from now until October!

Plums should also be coming soon!
