Summer Of 2012 A Very Good Year For Carroll Gardens' Fruit Crops

2012 seems to have been exceptional for fruit-bearing trees around the neighborhood.  You may remember the apricot tree on DeGraw Street that had an over-abundance of fruit. back in June  And now, in early September, there is more evidence that this year's hot summer has produced a bumper crop.
Just look at all the pears ripening on this tree on Carroll Street.  Though it bears fruit every fall, I have never seen so many hanging from its branches.

And look at this fig tree on Second Place at the corner of Court Street.  Quite impressive, no?

Did you have a bumper crop in your neighborhood yard this summer?  How were the tomatoes?

Apples are falling from an ancient apple tree behind president. Who planted that trees or was it a seed from a long tossed core?

I've been making homemade fig newtons for the Brooklyn Farmacy with figs from one of our neighbors. I trade him baked goods for 4 lb. bags of figs. I'll happily do the same with anyone else who's interested! Email to Nelle's attention at brooklynfarmacy@gmail.com

Very cool. I'll stop by to take a photo of your fig newtons, if you don't mind.
