I recently purchased a modest home and noticed that there were fruit trees scattered about the yard. I am a big fan of growing food and was ecstatic at the prospects. I was fairly certain about a few of the trees and their type and uncertain on a few others. Now that they all have fruit clinging to the limbs I can tell for certain what type they are! I have an apricot tree, two apple trees, two pear trees, two peach trees, and a cherry tree. I am going to have to brush up on my pruning skills. The only tree currently producing ripe fruit is the cherry tree. Oh, my goodness! Freshly picked cherries are divine!
They are so good and fun to be able to gather from my own yard!
Every time I hear or think of the word cherry, I think of my sister; she has the cutest way of saying, "cherries".
Here are a few pictures of some of the bounty we are basking in.
