Inspection, originally uploaded by MrsMama.

Our orchard is coming along nicely this year. We have 2 apple trees, 2 pear trees and one little cherry tree. As of this week, I've only seen fruit on the apple trees and 1 of the pear trees but I'm thrilled; Last year a late frost killed all of the blossoms and we didn't have any fruit. I am really looking forward to apple pie and apple crisp this Fall!

Another great photo! We used to have an apple tree when I was growing up. I think it took a long time for it to produce apples but once it started, it went nuts. :)

I think that is one of the joys of childhood: being able to pick an apple from your backyard, one still warm from the sun, and eat it. Picking apples is fun too. Peeling them - not so fun. :)
