Actually we have little oak trees popping up everywhere from the scrub jays that hide acorns in the grass!

From what I can gather, the new house has:
2 lemon
1 orange
at least 3 apples
1 fig
2 crabapples
2 unknown so far
1 possible loquat

(and that's just from what I can remember) :)
Sierra, I will post a photo once I get a good one (without the 'for sale' sign in front!)

nope, typical so cal yard. The fruit trees are planted around the perimeter of the backyard's grass.
Today I'm off to IKEA to price some stuff for the house. I'm getting excited!

And, when we move in a few weeks, no doubt I'll be asking for crabapple recipes, since I've never had one...and there are a ton on the plants!

It's so much fun moving into a new home. Packing isnt so much fun, but the unpacking and decorating are a blast. I envy you with all those fruit trees, especially the lemon and orange trees. Best of luck in your new home!

Congratulations, jkath. It looks like all the work you've been doing paid off, and fast, too! Like all the other east coasters, I'm envious of your fruit trees--you'll have so much fun with them!

Elf, she's taking my acorns first!!!
