Fruit progress pics
I started growing fruit five years ago when my Mom got a house with a large and sunny yard. There were several fruit trees already there, a few of which I had to remove, but the Weeping Santa Rosa plum and the Pink Pearl Apple are definite winners in my book and both are bearing well this year. The first tree I planted was the Babcock peach (5 years ago,) and we're getting our first harvest this year. Most of the other trees are 3 or 4 years old, and are giving their first fruits too. I've learned a lot, this forum and it's helpful knowledgeable folks have helped immensely, but I know there is still a lot left for me to learn. I have a list of things I would do differently next time and trees I would like to have someday, but I'm happy with the results I've gotten from my work so far.
Babcock Peach - The first fruit tree I planted, before I'd done any research on good varieties or anything. Nevertheless, I have to say a homegrown peach of any kind beats a store bought peach any day. I'm in heaven eating peaches and cream for dessert every night.
Thanks for all your help and advice everyone, and have a peachy day!
