Triple Crown Blackberries

I will have a handful of berries this year with much more expected for next year. Triple Crown Blackberry.

Mulched with wood chips and fertilized to keep them green. I am hoping for more primo canes between now and the fall months. Black Satin is on the right, the rest are Triple Crown Blackberries.

Plants are filling in, but I was hoping for more growth. Triple Crown Blackberries

Anna Apple Tree, overloaded as usual.

These are junior first year plants. Watch out next year! Marionberry and Boysenberry in the background.

We are having some weird weather and the plants are not sure what to do. I have an Anna Apple tree in full bloom. Some of my bare-root Baba Raspberries are sprouting new growth but my blackberries and other fruit trees are still dormant.  I rushed to take some photos before I left for a Superbowl party at my brother’s house, so they are not my best. Make sure you click twice on the photos. You won’t believe the detail in the close flower shots.

Second year Anna Apple in full bloom.

A close up of the Anna Apple blossom. There were a swarm of bees around this tree. I think that I should have a fair number of Apples this year.

Another view of my Anna Apple tree in full bloom. Notice the other pink flowers in the back ground?

I can't believe that my bare-root Baba Raspberries are sprouting already. I haven't put them into the ground yet!
