Our 60-year-old Blenheim apricot tree in our Santa Clara, California backyard started it all. Here is a beautiful, unblemished apricot snapped June 23, 2010 seconds before being picked.
Eric is the official fruit picker each year. Here he is standing in the tree picking the last of the fruit. It is a dangerous job since he climbs the tree and is invariably poked with branches that always ruin whatever shirt he is wearing.
