I don't really have an "orchard." I do have a couple apple trees along our property line.... There are a couple apple trees we can grow okay, and the Montmorency cherry does really well here, but our summers aren't warm enough, or dry enough, to produce mature fruit. This has been an incredible summer for Juneauites and we've had a couple dozen apples on our tree. They won't mature, but it's still fun to see them.

I keep expecting to wake up some morning and find that a bear has enjoyed a midnight snack, but maybe they're waiting for them to ripen a little more! Nancy
