As we explore the property we are renting, we are discovering lots of fruit and berries. There are 12 apple trees, about 6 blueberry bushes and a hillside of wild strawberries, blackberries, and possibly raspberries. Blackberries and Blueberries are old favorites, but apples and raspberries don't grow well where we lived in Texas, so this is quite exciting!
We took some pictures of the baby apples and blueberries when we arrived and I am amazed at the apple growth! We found some ripe blueberries on the bushes this morning and several that should be ripe in another few days.

|While walking up the hill behind our house, we noticed these tiny strawberries growing wild!|

|Blackberries almost ripe! They were blooming when we picked the strawberries above. If you can tell, the blackberries are growing on a vine among the larger leafed light green plants. I think these plants may be raspberries....|
