On this very hot end of summer day I walked my little orchard (with no fruit) and took a few pictures.
My lop sided pear tree. Originally a Moonglow, has few varieties grafted on to it. Some grafts didn’t grow too well, only about 6 inches. Some grew really well and put on more than 3 feet of growth. So the tree looks like the way it does now.
This is my newest peach tree. Last year I Found a volunteer seedling that didn’t get killed by the lawn mower and made it to 4 inches or so. This year I moved it and grafted several varieties to it. They all took and grew nicely. I haven’t seen many second year peach trees so I can’t compare but I think this is some tremendous growth. It’s about 6 feet now and the trunk has at least trippled in size. Here’s the tree and few graft unions on it that I’m happy about
