Five Little Fruit Trees
It's been one year this month since we moved to Nevada it sure has been a lot of fun getting together with all the family that lives here. I was so distracted last year that I did not notice all the fruit trees on the property or maybe it was because they did not fruit last year. I do not remember a single fruit on any of the trees except the one apple tree in the back yard
Last weekend I went out to the back and front yards and was really surprised to see not just one fruit tree the apple tree I knew was there but five, five fruit trees! Three trees were apple trees but two I do not recognize. This one pictured above... I'm not sure what this fruit is but I have a bush that's covered with these I wonder if it is a walnut? I think walnuts only grow on trees right? well the bush is really over grown maybe it is a tree that broke off and now is small
The bush is quite large though about 7 feet tall and 6 feet wide
Update June 11 2014. A friend told me to cut one of the fruit open and see what it looked like inside and another friend said it was a apple. So I opened it and this is what I found... sure looks like apple to me! mystery solved
Below are the apple trees that are fruiting in our yard, looks like I will be making a lot of apple pie this fall
I'm not sure what this fifth tree is but it looks like it may be a nectarine or peach??? I am excited to see what it is as it ripens.
Update July 2014: The unknown tree is a Plum Tree...
And the birds are really loving each plum that ripens before I can get to them lol Aw sweet little chirp chirps need to eat too
So I was reading a blog by Then she made and found this really cool way to make a soup storage can holder so I thought that I would try it myself so I start with a box like this then I cut the end off of my box because my pantry doors would not close because the box was too long then I taped the end I just cut off back to the place i just cut it off of but I tucked in the ends then I cut half way down the place I just taped to make a hole that I can pull the cans from when I need one Here is the finished end of one side next on the opposite side I cut a hole in the top so that I can add new cans to the back as I buy them that way I always use the oldest first next I took scrapbook paper and covered the box
I used this spray adhesive only because I love it! rubber cement will work just fine or what ever glue you wish
and here is my finished product! Woo Hoo I did this in only one hour! not bad I am quite happy with it. see how it works.....cans in back and pull out the front
Magically hanging leaf... just kidding, can you see the spider web?

A secret re-construction of my fathers trailer! He was pleasantly surprised
It only took a little bit of Paint, new wood, some soldering, new reflectors, new electrical wiring, new studs, new tires and a weeks worth of labor, Phew.... Well worth it for the best father around
The startling white of this Hibiscus flower, gorgeous
