Last year one of the community gardeners left her plot of fruit trees and as there were quite a number of them we were all given the opportunity to take over some trees. We chose a plum and an apricot. We got our first crop from the plum tree last year but no apricots. This year, there aren't that many plums...not sure why...lots to learn.
Here's a photo below of the plum and the apricot. I went down to the garden last evening and the apricot tree was full of native birds feasting on the fruit. Almost every single apricot had a bite taken out of it. If we're going to be serious about this venture, next year we'll need to net the trees.
As part of the orchard redistribution we also put our hand up for a fence line that has berries and grape vines. We aren't sure what species of berries we've inherited - loganberries maybe? So, in the spirit of world expansion, we planted a thornless blackberry to add to our future cropping.
Berry plant with yummy but unidentified blackish, purplish berries. No thorns on the vine.
Checking out that watering system. We are also unsure whether the grape vines are table grapes or wine grapes. It will be a bit lost on us if its the latter. Not sure our life is long enough to learn to press grapes.
