Apricots mark our 3rd house anniversary

Our apricots

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.

Freezing Apricots

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.
