Fruit at the homestead

Leave a comment

We continue to make discoveries at our homestead…some good, some not so good. The grape vine appears to be thriving and we think we may have a couple mulberry trees in our back yard. We also managed to put in a bed of strawberries that look great. My mouth is already watering in anticipation of future harvests! Then we also found what appears to be a plum tree overcome by black knot fungus, which appears to have spread to one of our newly planted fruit trees. We are going to remove the diseased tree and burn it. Below are a few pics.

Our first planting at the new house is a bed of strawberries!

Mulberry tree, perhaps?

And, the not so good. This appears to be black knot fungus on a plum tree in the back of our property.
