We re-planted the apple, pear and peach trees last year after “The Incident“ in 2010. We didn’t get any blossoms our first year, but we did see some this spring. The peach blossoms didn’t last very long, and we didn’t think they had been pollinated.
While I was out struggling to reclaim the orchard garden from the never ending onslaught of grass and weeds, I noticed these!
We have some apples and about 10 peaches so far. The apples are a little bigger than a match head and these peaches are about the size of a jumbo olive. I haven’t gotten close enough to the pear tree to see if there are baby pears growing there yet.
We may have fresh fruit this summer after all!
