Post Spring time fruit
Almost 3 years ago now we planted our first fruit trees & this year for the first time we are allowing them to give us a crop rather than knocking it off to focus on growth, its very exciting with a good crop of cherries, apricots & apples.
It feels like a major achievement given the amount of time we've been waiting.
The raspberries and strawberries are about to fruit too so looks like we will be having tasty breakfasts shortly!

Should make a tasty fruit salad among other things. Well done on finally producing after all that TLC.

Fantastic!

I've given up buying apricots in the shops - ick. Looking forward to reports on the home grown variety.
