An early April blog post showed photos of blooms on the apple, peach and pear trees in the Frog & PenguINN orchard. In the month and a half since then, the blooms have turned into small fruit.
OK, we admit it’s rather small (now) but here’s a view of the F&P orchard. Smaller apple trees are in the first row. Large apple trees and peach trees in the row with the garden bench. The two peach trees are already laden with so many small peaches that Grenville is talking about peach pies, peach cobblers, peach jam . . .He has similar plans for the apple tree . . . (except for the jam)The two strawberry patches have been producing better than ever this year, which is the third year since planting. We’ve frozen several quart-size bags. It will be great to enjoy these in the winter months.
Grenville has planted lots of veggies – asparagus. beans, beets, carrots, corn, cucumbers, lettuce, onions, peppers, tomatoes, squash (butternut and yellow), zucchini – and will be posting an update soon. He’s also planting a Great Pumpkin patch later in the season. We love making pumpkin pie and carving jack-0-lanterns.
(Just don’t ask him about those blueberries.)
