Yesterday I walked around and looked at all the fruit trees. The late freeze really messed things up but Mother Nature has her own agenda and who am I to argue?
Last year, it was the first of June and our plum trees were covered. We still have plums in the freezer. This year . . not a single plum!
The plum trees are beautiful and look healthy so . . there’s always next year!
Probably 95% of the peaches were lost. Most of the trees have 4 – 6 peaches on them.
These two peaches are way too close together but when there are only two others on the entire tree, it’s hard to thin them so these two will stay and I’ll probably wish I had removed one of them.
The jujube blooms late so it’s fine. It’s just now thinking about blooming.
We’ve never gotten a pear! We have probably 7 or 8 pear trees. This year, one tree has about 6 pears.
The grape fines . . they are two identical varieties, set about 8 feet apart.
There’s one and it’s full of tiny grapes.
There’s the other one. It cracked badly last year and Vince cut it back. We were surprised to see life emerging from it. I’ll probably never get grapes simply because we don’t take great care of the grape vines but I love having grape leaves for pickles and cooking.
Even the agarita is fill of berries. With the recent rains, we should have lots of berries this year.
Like so many things in life, we do our best and never are quite sure what the results will be.
