Produce as it Progresses and a Sunflower Garden

Hello again! It’s been a busy week at Apple Blossom Orchard and Market—and our plants have been busy too. They have been making so many fruits and vegetables! I decided to take a walk through our gardens here, and show you some of the baby versions of what we have growing at our orchard!

The apples looked excellent. It looks like we have a great crop to share with you!

Our cantaloupe was looking excellent. These babies from our cantaloupe crop are about three inches around. We tap on our melons and listen for a hollow noise to make sure they are ripe!

Baby Honeydew

 

This baby honeydew is a little bit bigger than the baby cantaloupe pictured previously. Honeydew is one of our favorite fruits to eat on the orchard!

We found a very small watermelon to show you, and the watermelon flowers were beautiful too! We have had some awesome seed-spitting contests.

 
Baby Cherry TomatoesThese cherry tomatoes were just beginning to get ripe. Those are my personal favorite fruit–I’ve loved them since I was very small.

 

 

 

 

These peas were perfect for eating. They just keep on coming!

Another personal favorite of mine… beans! I will eat them all day if I am allowed to. I have eaten up to three quarts full a day!

 

 

 

And then, at the end of my expedition… I came upon our sunflower garden. It had been a couple days since I had explored it. It exploded! We have several varieties, including monstrous-sized mammoth sunflowers, teddy bear sunflowers, and some red and lemon-colored sunflowers. They are beautiful.

Thanks for reading, and I hope you will enjoy these fruits as much as I have!
