Blooming apricots at Safe Haven Farm

shf_apricotSpring has sprung at Safe Haven Farm, and the apricot trees are blooming! … Or at least they were when I snapped this photo. Since then we’ve had major wind and hail, so the blossoms are all gone. But the part of the blossom that becomes fruit is still hanging on, so we may end up with a harvest this year after all!

If we get a harvest this year, I’ll be sure to pass on my favorite recipe for apricot jam. There’s nothing like it anywhere on a grocery store shelf, that’s for sure!
