Spring Harvest

The loquat hedge between our house and the street has produced quite a crop of fruit this year.

As you can see, there are ripe fruit, ripening fruit, and small green fruit on the trees at the same time.  You can also see that some of the fruit in the upper branches is past ripe and has been bird-pecked.

A couple of days ago we harvested several dozen loquats from some of the upper branches.

Happy dog was more than happy to help with the harvest.

Our one-and-only iris helped to celebrate the harvest with blossoms of it’s own.

We can look forward to harvesting more loquats every few days during the next three or four months.

There is something special about freshly harvested fruit that one has grown in their own garden.
