We are now sweeping the mid-season varieties, in this case Wood Colony. Once they are picked up, we will move on to the Monterey. The last variety will be Fritz in two or three weeks (hopefully not longer).

Nonpareil yields have come in highly variable. The wet conditions at bloom time suppressed yields in orchards that bloomed early, mostly in the foothills. Other ranches suffered from "wet feet" due to the prolonged rain in the spring. Orchards that bloomed a few days later, between rains, on well drained soils, have done very well.
