Faithful HomesteaderAfter having such a rough time with the garden last year, I am extra thankful for the fruits of our labor this year. We have already been able to harvest some things and other plants and flowers are looking good.

Our first peach
Our first peach.

We planted a couple of peach trees this year and they already have peaches. My husband said it was because he planted them at just the right time. I have never had a fresh picked peach. We just shared our first one. It smelled good and was quite yummy. I have been watching that peach for a while and I was so excited it was finally ready to eat.

My husband is picking blackberries almost every day. I never really ate blackberries before my husband started growing them. He loves having fresh fruit to pack for his work lunches.

Love our blackberries

We discovered that we have a grapevine that ended up growing up into a tree we have out back. There are so many grapes that we will have to get some from the roof, others with a ladder and maybe even need to climb the tree. Personally, I am a bigger fan of grapes than blackberries. I am looking forward to them.
