Re: Fruit Trees

We have had a few peach trees but never got much fruit out of them, or whatever the birds didn't get. We did have a huge fig tree, and I made a few desserts with the figs, but didn't try to preserve them.

I have heard it is very good too, but never did try it. I make strawberry jam every year though, it is a staple here at our home.

Yes, you're right. It's the jello, not strawberries, that you add.

Re: Fruit Trees

We have apple, pear, plum and cherry trees. We had peach, but they keep dying and we gave up on them. I took a picture of one of our plum trees, but I don't know how to get it from the phone to here. Maybe I'll figure it out. Or ask the kids. lol.
