Fruit Trees – A Family Tradition
Spring is absolutely one of my favorite times of year. I look forward to planting my Spring vegetable garden and I thoroughly enjoy the beauty of seeing everything in full bloom this time of year.
When I was growing up it was very common to see fruit trees all over our neighborhood. Some of my fondest memories were plum, pear, and peach trees growing in our yard and also in my great-grandmotherdear’s yard, just one block up the street from our home. I will always remember the muscadine grape vines growing in her backyard. Talk about the best grape jelly!
Carrying on this family tradition, I planted three fruit trees a few years ago, (plum, peach and nectarine) and to my surprise, in the first year my plum tree produced a couple of plums--yes two plums--and my peach tree also produced two peaches, as you can see in the pics. They were all delicious and gave me hope for this year. I am hoping for a huge yield. My sister Agnes also planted fruit trees and her little peach tree was loaded with peaches last summer.
Fast forward to this Spring. All of my fruit trees are currently in full bloom. The pink blooms are from the nectarine and peach trees and the white blooms are from the plum tree.
Will keep you posted!
