From Haugesund. With 3 children and a husband who's seemingly constantly away on business, I garden like it could save my life - and it probably does!

What do you think? This definitely looks like the beginning of something, doesn't it? And there is another one just like it, so if they both make it, I guess I can share (or not 😜) #fromseed - stone from a store-bought apricot. I never thought I'd get flowers, and then I thought for sure I needed another tree to get fruit. I do have another tree, also from self-eaten fruit, but that is a few years younger, so no flowers there yet.

With the autumn-like weather we've been having through most of May, I realize there is a real chance of it not ripening or simply dropping off, but I just can't help being excited - I mean, look what my home-made tree managed to do! Super cool!!! @terrimclaughlin

This, I believe, is apricot. (Unless I have gotten things mixed up - which is entirely possible) From seed/stone about 10 years ago. And now there are flowers!!!

I never thought I'd get fruit, that is such a bonus if that happens. Now I just hope we can avoid a late frost this year, fingers crossed! @cyndi
