Do you remember me showing you the itty-bitty plums on our plum tree a couple of weeks ago? Well here is a picture of those same plums . . . they’ve grown from about the size of a dime to about the diameter of a nickle now. Yes, I know it isn’t very much but they are much easier to spot now.
Here are some pictures of our Arkansas Black apples. They are now about the diameter of a quarter now. Here’s a few more but not quite as big.Last time I didn’t tell you about the blueberry bushes we planted at the same time as the fruit trees. There are eight plants, two each of four kinds. They are supposed fruit in succession throughout the fruiting season spring through fall. They are supposed to end up being about six feet tall and about three feet around. Nice!
This is a really cool picture to show kids how the fruit grows because it has some of the blossoms right beside some that have lost the blossom and the fruit is developing. So cool! I had never seen this before either.
We have quite a few wildflowers going on the property. Well, we did until Mike mowed. Now we won’t see them for a long while.
Here are some close-ups I took a couple weeks ago. They are tiny!
Then we have wild onions. And sometimes we have wild garlic too, which looks very similar to the onion so it’s hard for me to tell the difference just looking at them.
A couple of years ago we had this odd vine growing in our garden. I could not remember what it was. Turns out, it was on of the grape bushes we bought from Aldi and planted over 5 years ago. I thought it had died like the other fruit bushes we’d bought from there (because we did not care for them properly).
On the up side, my newest rose bush, which we planted last year, is doing good. It has a few buds on it already.
It has only ever grown where there is animal waste. So here I have called it the poop plant, I’m sorry to say. That aside, Tiffany got some nice shots of raindrops in that picture. She took a lot but I’ve already gone on long enough, so I won’t share anymore here today.
Have a great weekend!
Until next time, God bless,
