Fruit and Tree Update

I’m loving sitting outside more this spring! (Writing this outside. :D )

I checked on our fruit trees and the ones we planted have some fruit on them. There are a couple dozen peaches and plums on each of those trees and a womping 3 pears on the pear tree, as far as I can tell right now. I don’t know how a pear tree produces fruit because I didn’t see any blossoms but I’ll learn as the years go by.

It looks like they grow upside down. I had no clue!

It’s not very tall at only about 8 feet or so.

I don’t believe it is time yet for the apple trees to start blossoming or whatever it is they do to produce fruit, especially since I cannot find any hint of fruit there yet. ;)

However our volunteer peach tree in the chicken pen is doing AMAZINGLY!!!! It has oodles of peaches on it. I’m so excited!!!

There are a few other volunteer trees in the chicken pen; I don’t know what they are yet.

I wonder if any are other fruit bearing trees.

The grape vines I planted years ago and thought they had died out, seem to be full of life. I hope that maybe they will be better than the ones I got off of the vine a couple years ago. Those grapes were very small and the seeds almost filled the grape. Yeah, I know I could’ve gotten a grape vine that produces seedless grapes but that didn’t seem as natural to me–it seemed genetically modified, so I went with the ones with seeds. :p

Indicates grape vines and mimosa treesAs you can see, we have a lot of volunteer Mimosa trees. :) I’m okay with that because I love Mimosa trees but we’ll see. They may have to be removed, since they did root themselves in what used to be our garden area. There are about six of them, even though there are only about 3 or 4 different ones in the picture above.

I hope you have some fun planned for this weekend. I’m not sure what I’m going to be doing. I thought Brian, Lauren, and Liam were going to come up but they won’t be able to after all. So, I don’t know what I’m going to be doing. :o

Sure do miss them!!! =))

Until next time,
