Random thoughts about my gardening and beekeeping experiences in Northern California's El Dorado County.

#2 and #3
this year just might be a good year for fruit in my orchard. pictured to your right are the second and third nectarines i picked.
#1 was eaten the other day - with no thought of taking a picture to show you.
plums, apricots, apriums, pluots, pears and apples are all on tap too. cherries, however, are a bust.
as i am a disciple of the ed laivo backyard orchard culture method of pruning, and i do cut them back pretty hard every year - it has been a long haul to get into fruit production. i will give the cherries a couple more years. if no production - they will be pulled and other tree varieties be planted.
