I am hereby declaring 2012 the year of the fruit. While my tomatoes and peppers are doing all right, they are not growing as quickly as I'd like.
the fruits in my garden are doing gang-busters.
Strawberries - now that they can breathe from having been weeded, have so many unripe berries that the plants can barely stand up.
Raspberries - my canes are flowering and fruiting, and we will have the BEST harvest of them yet.
And even my poor old, decrepit peach tree, struggling to keep up appearances so I don't chop it down, has set an enormous load of peaches.
Now if the leaves would just stay on the poor old guy....
