|Tropic Snow Peach tree|
This is all we got off this fruit tree this year. But we had to go ahead and pull it, it was ripe and soft...and we wanted to beat the animals to it. So we brought it back into town, put in the fridge to get cold and then took it out and sliced it.
It was a small thing, but then again, the tree is only about 6 feet tall so it was a small peach for a small tree. It's lack of size didn't lose out on flavor. Wow.
SO good. There is nothing like a ripe peach fresh from the tree.
Can't wait to see what the tree produces in the years to come, but this was definitely a good sign that it's happy and doing what it's supposed to do.
|Kieffer pear tree with pears|
Meanwhile, the pear tree is going crazy and has about ten little pears on it. They are ripening nicely. Fingers are crossed that we get a nice batch of pears to eat and/or cook with, in a couple of months.
|Texas Everbearing Fig|
And both of the fig trees have lots of little figs on them. Hope they produce as well, nothing better than a sun warmed fig fresh off the tree.
Again, the trees aren't growing as fast as we would hope, but of course they've only been in the ground a year. Patience is a virtue right? LOL!
