Ready to bite into a fresh, crisp, and juicy apple? How about some really fresh pecans for holiday baking or tossing into a salad? The annual Extension 4-H apple and pecan sale sponsored by the Pinellas County 4-H Association is now in full swing. This sale is the main fund raiser for the 4-H Association to raise money for the 4-H scholarship program.
This year we are offering Yellow Delicious and Empire apples. Both varieties are excellent for baking, cooking, or just eating.
The apples are offered in quantities of a bushel for $44.00 or a half-bushel for $24.00. A bushel is approximately 40 pounds. Orders must be placed by October 1. Pick up will be at the Chester Ochs 4-H Educational Center October 25 – 28, 2012. The address is 14644 113th Avenue, N. Largo.
There are also pecans, halves or pieces, available in one pound bags. Specialty chocolate covered pecans, chocolate cluster pecans, and cinnamon glaze pecans are offered in 12 ounce decorative bags. All bags are $11.00 each.
It is very easy to place your order. If you know of a 4-H club in your area, any 4-H member can take your prepaid order. The 4-H Association web site at http://pc4hassociation.org/ has more information on the apples and pecans, as well as downloadable forms to pay by check or credit card. Credit card orders can also be placed online.
This is a win-win situation. You can enjoy delicious, fresh, nutritious apples and pecans and at the same time support your county 4-H program. Each year the Pinellas County 4-H Association awards $6,000 in scholarships for 4-H camps and trips, 4-H Legislature, 4-H Congress, and now, college scholarships.
