Today it’s fresh and juicy peaches and they will all be ripening in the next couple of weeks, we tried one yesterday and it was fantastic.
What’s ripening next?
Next will come the apples and then the pears. We will eat some of the apples fresh from the tree and the rest we turn into juice and most importantly cider!
You can’t beat a nice pear
Pears can take a while to ripen and you can tell when they are ready by pressing the skin near the stalk, if it is soft here then they are ripe.
New fruit varieties for small gardens
If you have a small garden space or even a sunny balcony don’t despair as there are lots of new dwarf varieties which you can grow.
I’d like to talk more about this topic but I have fresh peaches to eat.
