First Fruit

So back in March 2005 we got a 4-in-1 fruit tree. It's four stone fruits: peaches, nectarines, plums, and apricots. Today for the first time I picked fruit from the tree. I pulled two peaches and a plum and gave Rick one peach and took the other two to work. The peaches were lovely, and the plum was plum perfection. Even if my Calla Lillies are having a crisis, my roses are being overrun by weeds, and my oregano is choking out the mint (which really I didn't think anything could win over mint), my fruit tree is happy and healthy and bearing lots of yummy fruits in at least 3 different varieties. I think the apricots are coming later. This is definitely one of the coolest things I've ever planted in the ground. And oatmeal with fresh peach and plum on top makes coworkers jealous.
