Today’s top five things to do in Summit County

There was a certain kind of buzz in Palisade this week with the 96 degree temps, as Chris Brower, of Uncle John’s Farm Stand, traveled west to pick up fresh produce. Palisade peaches are quite a hit and one of the biggest requested items at the stand, along with sweet corn and tomatoes. While tomatoes “grown in the dirt” are one or two weeks away (Blaine’s outstanding pesticide-free greenhouse tomatoes are coming in strong), sweet corn is only a few days out, and peaches are ready. Rejoice, rejoice! Many peach growers are reporting a great peach crop, which is a welcome relief after they struggled with low numbers last year, although it means quite a lot of thinning. Plums, apples and pears are looking good, as well, and not long off.
