Eat A Peach

Eat A Peach and An Apricot and...

Tre Soli Apricots and Peaches 

Well you get the picture.  Eat fruit fresh from your back yard or better yet plant a fruit tree in the front yard and invite the neighbors to pick as they stroll by.  If you want to pick these at your home one day then now is the time to get planting.  In addition to luscious fruit, deciduous fruit trees give you shade in the Summer, colorful leaves in the Fall, the warmth of the Sun in the winter, fragrant blossoms in the Spring and a lovely carpet when the blossoms fall.  What?!  You didn't know you could have these here in the desert?!  Of course you can.  Come to the annual Maricopa Master Gardeners Citrus Clinic tomorrow morning at the Greenfield Citrus Clinic 8:30-12 p.m.  In addition to sampling fruit, there will be 1/2 hour sessions taught by experts about dates, citrus & deciduous fruits and their planting, pruning, fertilizing, etc.  And what about the food vendors, books and soil probes?!   and on and on.
