The Cherokee's are starting, should have more by next week. Rose tomato as well, and one pepper. 3 more limes from my new tree, planted last fall, a Bearss Lime. My dad has a Bearss Lime tree, actually now just a branch, that is over 25 years old and kicks out some serious fruit, dare to dream. Nothing like a fresh lime for the beer on a hot summer day! Maggie is not so into being farm dog when it's 100 degrees outside.
I am having to pick the peaches early so that the animals do not get them first. I have one old peach tree that is basically a branch, but it does have a few pieces of fruit on it.It's a race to see who will get more? Stay tuned
The Green Zebra's are starting to go off, as are the Early Girls and the Better Boys. The Heirloom's have lots of fruit on them but nothing red yet. Peppers are looking good as well, just waiting for them to get bigger, squash and zucchini are spreading.
Ry's Blood Orange, Moro, a few small oranges, planted this tree in the fall. The older one did not set as much fruit this year, bummer!
The Boys "helping" pick tomatoes. Their baskets were not very full, I think they eat 2 tomatoes for every 1 they put into the baskets. Standing in front of the Watermelon Heirloom, should give us tomatoes that weigh 2 pounds!
Finally finished the rain gutter on the "Man Shed", now all we need is some rain to fill the barrel. Picture of one of the two new Pomegranate trees that I planted in the fall. One tree has 5 pieces of fruit on ot the other has 3. Hopefully they will make it. Things have cooled down around here, only reached mid 70's in the past few days.

she is going to make a good farm dog.
