Tree-following -September 2018

Here we are in September and its time for the Quince Count, which is a source of great joy for me.

Let us begin:

1 quince

2 quince
3, 4, 5, 6 quince (trust me, there are four here)

7 quince
isn't number 7 rather a nice shape?

oh happy sigh....
my quince tree over-floweth, well maybe not over-floweth but seven is a pretty amazing number after all these years of waiting.  I think I may be not being too presumptuous to be considering jelly recipes.  Can you make jelly from seven quinces?  I will let you know.

Hang on a minute you say, where is Quince minor?

Blotchy-McBlotch Face?  Quince minor is fine, still in situ.  He's been reprieved until next year but if the blotchiness returns then I cannot guarantee mercy.

There is a forest of followed trees over on Squirrelbasket's blog.


  1. Interesting......

  2. I'm following your quince tree blogposts already for a long time. Finally justistice with no less than 7 quinces. It was worth the fun of waiting.
    Have a nice Sunday,

  3. Congratulations! and I'm glad to hear Quince Minor has a year's reprieve.

  4. That number seven is perfection itself!
    Well worth the wait, I would say :)

  5. Congratulations! It is always a great joy when a fruit tree finally starts to produce fruits. Even if it initially only makes a few of them.
