In the spring, I gazed up at its blossom, wondering whether we'd be gorging on apricot jam this summer. The tree's so close to our boundary, I've been worried a new fence would mean its demise. This week, a stake has gone up and marked the apricots as safe. Our lifetime supply of apricots is ensured!
Yesterday I inspected the fruit, mentally calculating pots of jam! We'll have to try and net or bag the fruit as there will be a lot of competition from the local bird life. It's so exciting to think we have our very own apricot tree. There's also a fig, mandarin and orange - a great start!
