Several Fruiting trees and bushes are planted in and around the property.
These include:

Peach Trees

There are two Peach Trees behind the chicken coop. Last year, 2017, was the first year they actually produced. One is "NorthStar Peach." The other is "Reliance."

Blueberry Bushes

There are two, well established blueberry bushes behind the chicken coop. Matty planted several more along the back fence this year as well.

This blueberry bush was hidden in the midst of the raspberry hedge. It is pretty much choked out, but managed to produce this one little bloom cluster. It seems bigger than the ones behind the chicken coop. High Bush, perhaps?

Indoor Citrus Trees

The Lemon and Lime trees are approximately four years old. We lost the orange tree last season. We suspect I over watered it. :( They will still go outside to sun in the summer weeks. Blossoms on these trees are pungent with lovely fragrance.

Lime 2018


It looks like there are some sort of aphid webs or something on the fruit and leaves of these plants.




The citrus trees go outside for the warm summer months and do very well. It gives them a chance to really catch up on growth.

The Lemon, Lime and Orange trees are approximately three years old. They are placed out on the deck to sun in the summer weeks when they make significant progress. Otherwise, they sit in the picture window in the living room of this South facing house. Blossoms on these trees are pungent with lovely fragrance. They have just begun the produce fruit to maturity. so far, each tree has made about five or six fruits each.
