Picking apricots

The apricot tree in our yard has had a successful year, producing lots of fruit, which just ripened this week with all the sun we've had. I am not sure if it's because of how fast they ripened, but the little white worms that ate last year's fruit haven't had time to infest these. We had a good time yesterday picking our apricots - although I'm not sure what we're going to do with them all.

Here's the tree, loaded, as you can tell.

Me, up in the tree, trying to get at the ripe ones at the ends of the branches.

Andrew and Gus on the ground gathering all the apricots.
