Fruit Babies!

There is nothing like homegrown fruit. Last year we enjoyed warm raspberries off the vine and perfectly sweet strawberries along with two (yes, just two) Italian plums. The anticipation for this year's fruit starts with tiny flower buds and bitty baby fruit that are revealing themselves now. Here are some of the fruitlets we are tending this year:

tiny immature grapessour cherry baby fruit concord grapes, montmorency cherries

strawberry immature fruitsred raspberry immature fruits strawberries, and red raspberries.

Not pictured are the fuzzy green peaches, snow drop blueberry flowers, soft chartreuse figs, and hard emerald lemons gathering sunlight and water in our garden.

Are you growing fruit this year? What kind(s)?
