  • Summer heat, summer fruit

    Posted on May 22nd, 2005 Jeff Keller 8 comments


    It’s about 90 degrees here in Brentwood today and all the summer fruit is there for the picking. Today my folks came back with me and we hit two farms: Maggiore Ranch for cherries, and Wolfe Ranch (one of my favorites around here) for peaches. We didn’t just buy a pre-packaged box of fruit — we picked ’em ourselves! Sounds dumb but it’s actually quite fun.

    Rows and rows of cherry trees. They had Bing and Coral cherries.


    These ladders are very tall and a little scary


    I can see my house from here! (That’s a joke)

    Now it was time for peaches at Wolfe Ranch. They have white and yellow peaches right now. Later in the summer they have awesome Blenheim apricots which taste like candy!

    • Yummmm! Cherries are my very favorite summer fruit. I’ve never made it all the way out to Brentwood to pick them myself tho! They certainly look great and well worth a trip.
      Happy belated B-day Jeff. Hope it was a good one. 🙂

    • Mmmmm. Ranier are my favorite, but I’ll take Bing as a second choice any day!
      On an off note, are you planning on heading south anytime soon for the 50th anniversary celebration at Disney? We have this family reunion thing in Brea the first week of July; I can’t wait!

    • I’m going to Disneyland next Tuesday. Woohoo!

    • Got any leftover, can’t eat cuz you’re sick of ’em already, willing to part with for someone who won’t make it out to pick her own, CHERRIES?? (i know – pretty lame, but wth, worth a try :))
      Completely jealous of your upcoming DLand trip, btw…it’s been toooo long. Hope you have a great time!

    • Hey I’m trying to get people to come to Brentwood – no deliveries here!

    • Oooo. Wondering if that was yesterday that you went or a week from yesterday. At any rate, I hope you take lots of pic. I need something to tide me over for another month! Have fun!

    • No I’m still here! Leaving for SoCal on Friday… will be back on the following Wednesday and will post pictures promptly!

    • Scratch that — now I’m going to DL on 5/30 and coming back on 5/31… change in plans.
