Meadow - update fruittrees


In the last couple of weeks it's been very good weather for the meadow. First of all it was really warm and then we got enough rain. The fruit looks great!
That was a good time for taking a picture! Great to know is that not only is there a great diversity of fruit in the garden, like apples, plumbs, pears, nectarine, hazelnuts, walnuts, pears, cherries. But there are also a lot of different varieties of fruit. For example there are seven different varieties of apples, like the Ecolette and the Granny Smith. But there also are two different kind of plumbs, a sweet Reine Claude and a sort to bake with.
The walnuts are also hanging in the walnut tree and there are quite a lot of them. Great news after the bad walnut year of 2012.
I finish the post with my most favourite apple to see (the beautiful pink and intense green combining in one apple!)
