More Garden Harvests

Aren't we lucky?

We are enjoying more garden harvests although we cannot help but be confused about our greengage tree. You would see what I mean as you browse through the photos.

Plums and pears from our mountain garden

Sweet pears yet some of them were already hanging rotten, why, we don't know.

Our Garden Harvests

Our gardens in the backyard and the mountain are thriving, but not as much compared to last year.

The cherry trees in our mountain garden did not bear any fruits this year, while the raspberries and the strawberry patches didn't survive. There were not much red currants and the gooseberries, too. We are still waiting for the carrots, red beets, tomatoes and peas in our backyard. But we already harvested some zucchini and beans. And my husband sadly informed me that we might not get any squash nor cucumber nor cabbage this year.

So, might as well enjoy the fruit-bearing trees as much as we can!
