The harvests of apples and grapes are looking good in the Quinte area.
Eric Lawlor, of the Brighton office of the Ministry of Agriculture, says the apple crop is very good. The trees are yielding lots of apples, and they’re a good size.
Meanwhile, the sunny, and warm stretch we had for most of this month, has really helped local vineyards.
Grapegrowers are expecting a good harvest.
Although picking will be delayed about a week in our northern regions, harvesting has begun in Prince Edward County.
