July 14, 2021

By the time you read this I will be out on a 5-day river trip on the Colorado/Utah border. While I am so excited for this peaceful (and challenging) week in the wild, I am just a little bit disappointed that I won’t get the chance to fight my children for the delicious plums we are getting this week from Marilyn’s Orchard. Steve and Marilyn Meyer have a lovely orchard in Camp Verde where they grow absolutely delicious fruit. We are looking forward to enjoying more of their fruit this season after last year’s fruit drought. There is nothing sweeter than perfectly ripe, freshly picked fruit.

While I am subsisting on peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, please enjoy this week’s fabulous basket. Because I will be out of service for the entire week, please contact Hilary at 928-592-8886 or hbarnett101@gmail.com if you need anything or have any questions. Payments for the second half of the season are due on July 21st. We sent out payment reminders last week for those of you who have a balance. As I said last week, if you will not be joining us for the second half of the season, please contact Hilary as soon as possible. Thank you!

Have a gorgeous week!
