We have quite a few fruit tree at home and a bumper crop of fruit this year. Heaps of delicious apricots, plums and apples, although we lost most of the apples to some colourful birds which ate them. Of course you can’t eat bags of apricots all at one time so we preserved much of it. We have a dehydrator which dried up the apricot halves and we made fruit leather as well. Many jars of yummy apricot jam were made as well.
Next year we will have to net the trees better, otherwise it can all be lost to possums, birds and fruit bats.
