A Nectarine Harvest

Today was the big day - we harvested our very first ever nectarines!!! :D

It was with great excitement (and still in pyjamas) that the children ran inside from visiting our little tree, planted only in January this year, to tell me there were 3 ripe ones! We've been watching them closely this past week.

So, we picked them. And the children ate one each with their breakfast.


Can you guess what we'll be harvesting from our baby orchard next?

Apples!!!!!! I am SO excited about this. The orchard brings me much delight. I'll have to plant all these trees again in our new place. They've done so well and there's nothing quite like growing your own fruit. :)

And I just couldn't help taking this shot. Naked bottom and his rainbow gumboots. He he. :D

Oh you changed your blog background, nice! Love Saraya's excited expression and oh my that picture of naked William's bum with his gum boots on is PRICELESS! Enjoy those juicy, tasty home grown fruits. Will you transplant these trees or just plant new ones?

love the fruit! We've been wanting to plant some fruit trees but just don't have the space...without taking up the area the kids play kickball/baseball/soccer.

Yum! I'm so excited about stone fruit coming into season. Yours looked absolutely delicious!
Enjoy your orchard.

YUM! There is nothing as exciting as getting your fruit straight from the tree!
I'm impressed that your trees are already producing - I remember when you planted them!
How is all the moving plans going?
