Is is all of the rain?
All in all my orchard is a bust this year. Yes there are apples on my Pristine but maybe only a third of what I had last year. There are about 30 apples on the tree. My Enterprise is finally having 12 small apples (rather than one or none per year, as it seven years old now). My Jonagold has about 16 apples one rather than (3-6). But boy its slow this year and the apples seem smaller. My 'Mott's Pink' apple has 4 on it for the first year of fruiting. Cannot wait to see the pink flesh. They are a little larger than a ping-pong ball.
My one peach (out of five peach trees is coming along slowly). The Italian Plum is the only tree that is performing well, but the prune-plums are smaller than they should be. Most of them have cat facing or russeting of some sort. Ugh.
My Caroline raspberry crop will be huge, thank goodness. Also It is fun watching my (poorly reviewed) Ouachita blackberries turn from red to black. I must say, they are not ripe enough to taste, but they are huge. It will take maybe one quart for a pie.
My currants and strawberries have been the best so far. With plenty to eat and put up.
This is not about patience at this point, I've learned to live with that, its now about what am I doing wrong? Mrs. G
