|Apricot trees started blooming a week ago|
Now I wish I'd transplanted each and every one of those volunteer apricot trees because every one of them survived, and each tree is slightly different from the other. Some trees bloom a few days earlier, some have a slightly bigger apricot, some apricots are sweeter, some have thinner skins, etc. Every year I always think I should plant some of the fallen apricots in a proper nursery bed to grow some more apricot trees (just in case something happens to these trees), but I always seem to get distracted on another project until it's too late. Maybe I'll finally remember to get around to it this year.
|Peach trees started blooming a couple of days ago|
I'm hoping that these trees will last a few more years until the new trees can start producing so that I don't have to go peach-less for very long. I've been planning to plant some new peach trees for a few years, so maybe next year will be the year that I actually follow through on those plans. It's bad enough when there aren't any peaches because of a late freeze, I'd hate to go peach-less because I didn't get around to planting some new peach trees before the old trees died out completely.
