FRUIT UPDATE: June

It’s only the first day of summer, but it appears our backyard is already eager to produce food for us.

Last night we ate the first of our Santa Rosa plums. They were good — a little tart yet, but pretty darn good for food we ate off the DIRT IN OUR OWN BACKYARD.

Today I fed some to the contractors; they had no complaints.

And since we last pruned and inspected, things have taken on a surprising amount of shape and color. The fruit on our trees/vines/bushes is now all identifiable. See?

Grapes

Grapes!

Pears

Pears!

Limes

Apples

Apples!

Plums

Plums (the lower-hanging, as-yet-unripened ones)!

Apricots

Apricots!

Blackberries

Blackberries!

Our fig tree hasn’t changed much — it’s still LOADED with figs, but they still pretty much look like they did a month ago. We suspect they’re going to need a long, warm summer to ripen all the way up, but that’s okay — our tree is old and huge and we have lots of sun. It’ll happen. And no olives on the olive tree yet, but we’ll be watching that one with baited breath.

Can’t wait to eat some of this stuff on our NEW DECK!

Our new deck in progress.

Going up…

We’ll wait until they put the slats on it, though, of course.
