  1. Pluots and donut peaches seem somewhat exotic to the average fruit lover. But at Tiny’s Organic, an East Wenatchee-based farm operation, the two premium fruits are some of the company’s biggest sellers ... well, if you don’t count apples. Tiny’s sells fruit and fruit products at the Wenatchee Valley Farmers Market and about a dozen farmers markets in the Seattle area. The company also runs a popular CSA (community supported agriculture) program in the Wenatchee Valley and Seattle.
  2. For the last three years, members of Rio de Vida, Wenatchee’s Spanish Foursquare Church, has grown organic fruit and vegetables at the site, including tomatoes, chilies, peppers, tomatillos, cherries, blueberries, and corn. They sell the products at the site and also give much of the crop to the area needy. Balbina Macias washes tomatoes after they are picked at a garden at the corner of Grant Road and S. Nile Ave., in East Wenatchee.
  3. Two letters of the Stan’s Merry Mart sign in Wenatchee flank the supermoon that lit up the Wenatchee Valley Sunday night. A supermoon occurrs when a full moon happens at the same time the moon makes it closest approach to Earth on its elliptical orbit. The result is a moon that appears larger than usual.
  4. Brothers Jackson and James Neumann of Wenatchee play and watch as Bart Miller operates a Chelan County PUD milfoil harvester in the Columbia River at Kirby Billingsley Hydro Park. The harvester cuts milfoil down to about 4 to 5 feet below the surface to keep open access to docks, boat launches and swim areas in PUD parks.
  5. WENATCHEE — Kids took center stage Tuesday evening at the annual National Night Out event, which was held at Memorial Park.
