Harvest

No. Not a post about the seminal album by Neil Young. I have now picked all of the apricots from the tree. The haul was about 12 fruits. The birds got about 4. Not bad for its first year! The fruits really ripened quickly, and once they got fully ripe, they became very delicate. Once the last bit of green was gone from the skin, they were so sweet and tasty. The bird net has how been moved to the peach tree which has a bunch of fruit slowly ripening. After that the net will be moved to the plum tree which is also producing.
