I like to think of my small collection of fruit trees as my “mini orchard”. I bought a struggling peach tree for dirt cheap (pun intended) from where I work. It had been in a pot for a few years and needed to get in the ground and stretch it’s legs. She is an Eva’s Pride, which harvests a full month before my Red Baron peach. AND it requires even less chilling hours…only 100-200, great for areas like mine in coastal southern CA.
Here’s the Red Baron beginning to change from greenish/yellow to pink.
A fun lemon cucumber ready for picking.
Indigo Rose is beginning to fruit and I swear I can already see that purple color.
The Cherokee Purple heirloom tomato that I seem to grow every year is shaping up some nice fruit.
This evening’s harvest! Check out the Silkies trying to get a hand-out. HA!
