Fruit is Poppin' All Around

It is exciting lately to see all the blossoms, and fruit developing.

Here is one of the new Peach Trees we planted a month or so ago... it seems to be taking root and going strong.

Pretty tree.

We had pretty good wind the other day, and a few of the new grape vines snapped off.

Only a few were lost.

This time of year the vines make great new starts - so we put them in a bucket of water for a few days.

Here are the baby grapes.

Now they just need alot of sugar added to plump-em-up.

The new blueberry bushes we planted last month are taking well, too.

Look at all them berries!

The first round of strawberries are on their way, too

After a few days of soaking in the bucket, we trimmed most of the bigger leaves off the broken grapevines, and trimmed them down.

Another few days to soak in the bucket, and we'll start them in soil.

The blackberries and raspberries are also beginning to blossom.

All of this rain is good for something - a great start to the berry and fruit season.
