Trees and Vines

I love eating green grapes. One of my favorite fruits right next to apples. When my wife and I bought our first home- I had two apple trees and a grape vine. I took great care and tended to them meticulously in order to enjoy the fruits which they bore.

We moved to our current home a dozen or so years ago. There was already an established plum tree, a pear tree and an apple tree in the yard. I planted a second apple tree as well. Over the years, we saw fruit from the original three trees. But in the last couple years, we lost the plum tree to disease and the original apple tree uprooted. This year the pear tree did not bear any fruit.

Sadly, this means our fruit trees are no more it seems. Even the apple tree I planted has not grown much in a decade. We have many other healthy trees which keep our home and yard shaded.

I think that next spring I will plant some grape vines in the sunnier part of my yard. I love green grapes.
