Just made my day, so exciting.

This morning DH said to me, come with me I want to show you something. We headed out the door and across the drive toward the fruit orchard. I have been soooo busy I haven't been inside the orchard to inspect the trees up close in a bit now. We walk in and I see them! Peaches everywhere all over the peach trees! I am squealing at this point. Then I see the plums on the plum trees, the nectarines on the nectarine trees and yes some pears on my pears trees!!! I was so excited I didn't know if I could stand it!!! I was nearly running from one tree to another looking and checking and laughing. Amazing I had not seen these! The two plums that got caught in the late freezes didn't have any but my other two plums have tons so I am good to go! If I can manage to hang on to the fruit that is on the trees I will have plenty for jelly, pie fillings. plum dipping sauce, peach in light syrup,  and and and. :O)..

You can see all the fruit when you enlarge the photos! :0)... Now I have got to get some tobacco and make my spray and get them sprayed so the worms don't get in the fruit! I sure hope it works. I won't use chemicals on them. I was told that tobacco really works. This gal assured me they  use it on their fruit trees and it works as they are chemical free gardeners as well. I sure hope so!









I took theses next ones just because it was pretty inside the fruit orchard.











 and one final note! 3 of my 4 Fuyu persimmon trees I palnted if you all remember last fall.... They have finally sprouted little baby leaves!!! Whew... I was getting worried. The fourth one is looking like its going to as well. The two fuyus I started from seeds 1 1/2-2  yrs ago.. They are leafed out as well and are about 20 inches tall now :O)...  I will be planting those this coming fall. I will give them the summer to keep growing and get a bit sturdier. The trunks are very thin at this point. I am surprised how many leaves they have on them for such thin trunks. But that is so fun that those came from seeds I saved from fruits I ate.

Gratz on the fruit. We usually lose our Peaches due to late freezing but this year so far they are looking good.

I had a Paw Paw tree I planted last year as a little stick and babied all Summer then the rabbits ate it this Winter. I noticed yesterday he was sprouting new growth though so I am excited about that. Maybe before I die I will have some Small Hold grown Paw paws!!!

Your fruit trees are laden, they're so beautiful! And your roses are just gorgeous.

I love that you started persimmon trees from seed.

Texan,

Wooohoooo.....congratulations on all the fruit tree's blooming and producing fruit. I'm so happy for you, and now I'm thinking how nice it would be to have all this fruit for canning, making pies, and cakes ect.....

I hope you find tobacco and get your preventative out before the worms come around.

Looks like you're due a good crop (Don't count your chickens yet though as you know what fruit trees are like!) Mine are coming into blossom now so I'm sure I'm due a hard frost any time now!
