So this is why the blue jays have taken up residence in our yard!

May 30th, 2013 at 11:40 am

On the way to a lot of fruits and veges in my diet! A few photos I took this morning in the back yard...

Early Summer Apples

Our apple trees are full of smallish fruit that will be ready in June. WAAAAAY too many to eat, so I am going to be making applesauce. Must pick before the birds sit and peck away.

Table Grapes!

I just love the beauty of grapes, nevermind eating them! The vines grow while you watch, the little curly fingers grab onto anything nearby. I press the leaves for crafts, and have even made stuffed grape leaves once (not bad turn out but alot of work). Not loads growing, but I am charmed that it worked in our little yard! But watch out for mice, yes in our area, that eat these if we don't get to it before they do.


Pretty flowers and gigantic zukes to come I am sure. Kids will not notice in zucchini bread, especially if I add plenty of chocolate chips. My husband and I will go for it plain steamed. No butter needed.

Nothing to photo on the nectarine tree (yet), bell peppers, or tomatoes. Onions still coming out of our ears.

Wild and Native type Flowers to photo next!

    A couple of ideas for you:
    Apple butter - requires a lot of time, patience with low heat but will require a lot of apples.
    Fried zucchini blossoms. Might as well eat them at the source!

    Geesh. You must be a zone or two ahead of us. My garden doesn't look anything like that yet! I'm zone 6 a

    We are zone 23 or so according to SUnset (USDA 10a I think)
    These are early summer apples, not autumn, suitable for warmer areas
