A jar of fruit harvest. Last of the 2014 peaches

30 May

I was wondering when these were going to ripen but they ended up being crunch tasty peaches this year instead of soft ones. Which was actually awesome as they didn’t fall off and rot when neglected for a week or so 😉

Small but tasty. Definitely not tart, even hubby liked them this year. I wonder what makes them soft and juicy some years and other years like this batch….

Some thing to do with weather… I love natures variety but am sad I have to wait a whole year to sample more!

All these we’re from container trees/plants. Seems like a got fewer blueberries this year. Southmoon definitely produces tastier larger berries. Misty is tasty too but some are small but seems to have a longer fruiting season.

Here’s another batch of peaches from earlier in the week.

Another jar of paler peaches from earlier in the year. These are from the tropic prince tree. Did not taste too good. Very tart and softer. Occasional juicy one. These were falling off the tree back in April so it picked them all.

2013 So many blueberries and peaches! Amazing what you can grow out of a pot

These are all separate pickings. Some handfuls of blueberries didn’t make it back for photographing 🙂 so tasty! Still a few more on the plant left.

Blueberry season!

11 May

So these are southmoon and misty blueberry bushes. They’re so amazingly productive and are doing so well in these small pots I am thinking of ditching all the other plants and just growing blueberries! I am so happy with these. Last weekend got a small handful of blueberries, this weekend, I got two handfuls that didn’t even make them back to the house. I love my weekly blueberry harvest.
Here’s some pics of ones to be ripened as I ate all the tasty ripe ones before taking pics.
