Some years are good for fruit and some aren't. This year seems to be a good one for nectarines. When we moved out here, with all the rocks and such, I didn't think we could grow fruit trees, but eventually I built up the soil to a level where some small trees will grow. It was more of a build on top of the ground rather than dig down into the ground thing, but whatever works!
We've had a very wet winter and early spring, and the fruits look beat up somewhat. Still, I counted at least 60 on there. The problem with nectarines is that they all get ripe at the same time. Oh well, that's better than not having any at all!
