I thought I had taken a photograph of the trunk just to show how thin it is. I feel slightly guilty about growing my fruit trees in large pots. It feels a little too restrictive for them but they are well fed & watered & I prune them each year.
It isn't an old craggy tree just a baby really, there are no holes or marks on the bark. No interesting features yet but there is blossom. After all one of the most important things for a fruit tree.
I'm not expecting a huge harvest, in fact looking at the blossoms there wont be enough for a pot of jam. A taste of things to come though perhaps?
Time to invest in a different camera I think, my aim & shoot method is fine for shots of the garden but I'm really struggling with taking photos of my tree. Then again the weather was pretty dire trying to take the above photos!
