New Baby Trees!!!

I'm the proud mama of two new fruit trees!

We had a dead silver maple (I think) that needed to be removed and that opened up some room in our yard.

And I met a cool new friend who grows fruit trees for fun (How awesome is that?!?!) He hooked me up with an Apricot and a Pear tree! Both are very winter hearty and happy living in Minnesota.
The pear tree is a Comptesse Clara Frijs Pear originally from Denmark in the 19th century. I must admit I chose this one largely based on the name. She just sounds so regal!

The apricot is a Chinese Sweet Pit Apricot. You can eat the pits!

I'm super excited to get these planted and watch them grow up. Maybe in a couple years I'll be canning apricot and pear jam from my backyard!

I'm super excited to hear more about them when they start producing! That is terrific, and I totally would have picked the same pear variety because of the name :)

exciting! We took down two jack pine trees this year and my plan is to put in a couple of fruit trees next spring. I'm hoping for a cherry tree.

Where did you buy your Chinese sweet pit apricot tree? I guess it doesn't really matter where, if it's a reputable nursery.
