A Poor Crop

Dot asked us to take a look at her fruit trees this morning. Usually we get a great crop off them but not this year.  The apple tree had two apples on it, the plum tree had one tiny plum, the pear tree has done better, but not nearly as well as usual. Ailz says it's been a bad year for fruit across the country.
