Last fall, Mark fed the trees in the yard. This spring during the dry times we watered the trees. Early spring this old tree was covered with white fragrant blossoms - so we knew it was a fruit tree but didn't know exactly what kind. We thought apple or crabapple but it is an APRICOT. I'm making jam tomorrow!
Mark and I picked the entire cherry tree on Sunday. Look at the bounty! They are sitting in an old turkey roaster and the tea cup gives you an idea of the volume of fruit. I then made the cherry jam and dry packed 11 pints of cherries to use through the winter for pies, etc. Our freezer is beginning to look like a food version of a pirates treasure chest. Fantastic!
Check out the growth in the garden at this time. Those are tomatoes in the tank - and boy do they have lots of tomatoes setting on.
