Look whats growing in our garden

Over twenty years ago I planted these quince trees.  This year I have the best crop of quinces ever.  The trees don't produce fruit each year.  If we get strong winds at blossom time it will not be a good year for fruit.  Over summer the sheep are allowed to graze this section around the house to keep the grass down.  I let the sheep in this year and they immediately started eating the leaves on the quince trees.  Some sheep were even standing on their back legs to reach that little bit higher.  The sheep have been banished until after quince harvest.

This is one of the happy healthy quinces. 

And the crab apple is laden with fruit as well.  I will make crab apple jelly.
