Impossibly early

Impossibly early Vista Bella apples for sale from Nicewicz Family Farm earlier today at Arlington's Farmers Market.
In the words of that great detective and distinguished pomologist Sherlock Holmes, "when you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth."

These Vista Bellas can't be for sale yet. Let alone ready to eat.

Except they are.

And with that, another apple season begins.

Update July 21: What's even more surprising after this precocious debut, there were no new apples for sale last week at all.

I hope we are not looking at another erratic harvest like that of 2010.
