July garden - fruit

checking out fruit so far and thinking about Autumn -

wondering whether the peaches will grow any more?

raspberries and strawberries have cropped really well but are slowing down now. I hoped that some of the strawberry plants moved from the allotment would turn out to be perpetual fruiters but it doesn't seem likely.

the newest apple tree is getting ready for a bumper crop later and even the old tree has decided to flower at last.


  1. the apples on that tree bring back fond memories for me,, happy monday to you,, Mary,

  2. I'm amazed how well it's doing. Planted just over 2 yrs ago. The first year we got about a dozen apples, then one last year but Hubby's been counting and found about 3 dozen. Some will fall off and some need thinning, but the fruit's quite big already so should have really good crop.
