Apricots this year?

Every year we ask the same question. 'Will we get apricots this year?'

Well, it is looking pretty good at the moment. But anything can happen.

This is an apricot on a tree that we netted.
These are on a tree that we could not net as it is just beside a narrow path. So we will have to beat the birds. (Yeah, okay, we can but try.)
We didn't have any apricots on the trees the last few years. So this is a new sensation.

Watch out for the Rosellas in the early morning. Yesterday I was out of bed unusually early for me, just in time to see a big flock of Rosellas descend on the Plumcott tree. I hunted them off, but I bet any money you like they will try again.(they went off in the opposite direction to your place!)

Lots of hope here, Kel. ;)

Thanks for the warning, Olive! Will be extra-vigilant. Glad to hear they didn't come our way. :)

Hmmm...must check the netting. I WANT apricots!

Good luck, Angela! :)
