God graciously began to grant fruit to grow from our fruit trees!
I believe these are our first plums from the trees!
Here are more. Often, the wind would blow the trees and drop many of the plums to the ground before they were ripe, so they would ripen off-tree:
That looks yummy! (And they were!)
Here they are on our solar food dehydrator:
There were a lot more on the trees too, like bundles of grapes. Interestingly though, a couple of days after seeing them like that, they were all gone…nothing…like they had never been there. I’m assuming birds got them, but wow.
But then, it was on to peaches!
And then onto the food dryer for them too. We were getting so many at one point, it was hard to find room on the dryer!
And here are almost all of the peaches, conveniently stored away in bite-sized, fruit-roll-tasting morsels!
And some extra ones pressure canned on the left, and made into jam on the right!
We are very grateful to the Lord for these gifts! It was so great to be able to walk out to a tree, pick a fruit, and eat it straightaway! We are very thankful.
