We inherited the apple orchard with 55 assorted fruit trees, mostly various kinds of apples and some pears, peaches and a single sour cherry. The peaches were hit hard the first winter we lived here and we lost them all. The sour cherry gave us wonderful 4th of July pies until a few years ago. We tried to keep it going but we lost the sour cherry too. The pears haven't been producing, but this year with the new bee hives our apples are WONDERFUL. Homemade applesauce for Hanukkah!
