A Fruitful Walk

A walk around the Back 40 revealed a nice crop of soft mast for fall. These are wild plums on some trees I planted 6 or 7 years ago. A Seckel pear tree fruiting for the 1st time. Hopefully the bear won't break it down if they spy it's fruit.

The wild blackberrys are looking good. Maybe they will keep the bears busy.

An apple on a grafted "Sherry" apple tree. This variety is noted for its fruit hanging on the tree all winter.

The Paw Paw trees are heavy with clusters of fruit.

I get a great feeling of satisfaction when I see a tree that I planted years earlier setting fruit and knowing that it will still be producing long after I'm gone.
