Baby apples and plums

Our apple and plum trees have started producing fruit. The baby apples are about the size of a ping pong ball. We'll have to put netting over the apple tree soon. These apples aren't very big when they ripen. They'll about double in size.

The baby plums are the size of acorns. I didn't even realize the plum tree had bloomed. Not sure how I missed that.

The local robin has built her nest in the plum tree for the second year in a row. From the picture of her, it looks like she's still working on it. There are no eggs yet and I haven't actually seen her in the nest. I hope she hurries up before the plums start to ripen so we can cover that tree too.
