This year we have really enjoyed our backyard! The fruit trees we planted 4 years ago, have finally started bearing fruit. And it's super yummy! The kids love playing in the backyard, and I am so excited to be able to have a wonderful garden. Now, don't get me wrong. I do not have a green thumb - unless you count weeds. I am also pretty busy, and I hate yardwork and pulling weeds. I got to friends yards who have absolutely beautiful yards - but it's just beyond me to do it...kinda like sewing. I do love eating the tomatoes. You can never have enough tomatoes - especially when they're straight from the garden! I LOVED the pear tree too! The kids ate them, and I think next year I may try bottling some. I know,'gasp' heard round the world! I actually made applesauce with the apples from our tree. I kept the perfect ones to just eat - but the rest I turned into applesauce. Straight apples. No sugar, completely organic (cause we don't know how to spray our trees). So wonderful! Truly feel blessed to have what we have!
