For the first time in three years our apricot tree produced fruit! Goes to show what a great deal of pruning, a little TLC & fertilizer plus the right weather conditions can do for a tree.
And not just a few apricots. Bags and bags full. I forgot how quickly these little guys ripen.
Nate was upset with the amount of fruit flies that appeared after I left a large bowl full of fruit out. So I had to get resourceful. I gave a bunch to our neighborhood baker. Then I froze four baking sheets for smoothies and just eating frozen this summer.
This Tuesday marks our third anniversary in this concrete house. Besides revitalizing our neglected apricot tree, we’ve accomplished a few more projects this year. Here’s some of my favorites I’ve written about on the blog.

The Rat/Mouse Incident

Removed the Roses
Nate & Pixel the Moth Hunters
Repainted the Back Porch
Planted the Front and Back Porch Beds
