This year I'm very hopeful we'll be harvesting fruit from our garden. Most years the late frosts have all but wiped out our apricots, peaches, cherries, grapes and apples. But this year, being so mild, our fruit is growing bigger every day and even if there's a light frost I think they'll be okay.
These apricots are my babies. I kind of have a soft spot for them. Only two other years have we harvested these beauties and only a few at best. This years there are so many that I'm pretty stoked about it.
The grapes are pretty hardy. We've gotten grapes every year. I love how just a few weeks ago the leaves just started emerging and now we have small bundles of grapes on the vine. The only problem with the grapes is that the birds love them too. When they are about ripe, the kids go up and get them before the birds. But, I'm happy to share a little too.
Do you see these adorable little peaches? Our peach tree is only 3 or 4 years old and we haven't gotten anything from it so far. Cross my fingers and hope that we can get some peaches this year.
What kind of fruit trees do you have and how are they doing this year?
