If we didn’t know it was spring by all those cherry blossoms blooming on the Old Mission Peninsula, we certainly know it by that row of lovely tulips on Bern and Cheryl Kroupa’s farm along Center Road.
If you’re headed north, there’s a long row of the brightly-colored blooms on the right, just before you get to Old Mission Tavern and Eiman Road.

In the fall, you’ll find a variety of the Kroupas’ apples for sale along the stone wall across from the Old Mission Tavern. We look forward to those, too.
Thank you, Bern and Cheryl, for these cheery blooms along the roadside, brightening our day every time we drive by them.
A NOTE FROM JANE: I started Old Mission Gazette in 2015 because I felt a calling to provide the Old Mission Peninsula community with local news. After decades of writing for newspapers like the New York Times and Los Angeles Times, and magazines like Family Circle and Ladies' Home Journal, I really just wanted to write about my own community where I grew up on a cherry farm and raised my own family. So of course, I started my own newspaper. Because the Gazette is mainly reader-supported, I hope you'll consider tossing a few bucks my way if I mention your event, your business, your organization or your news item, or if you simply love reading about what's happening on the Old Mission Peninsula.
