I wrote last time about the apparent demise of the Pioneer Orchard west of Jackson. I reported that the only things I could popping up out of the ground where we once bought peaches, apples and cider were ironically name street signs.
Janet Fenimore Robert took me to task
I don’t think you went far enough!! I never go that way but Pioneer Orchard is still going strong. Also there are big trees on Oak, haven’t noticed their type but I will from now on. Are you sure you were in Jackson, Mo???????
Show me the trees

My mother and my wife generally tell me that I’ve gone too far, but Janet caused me to doubt myself, so I pulled up Google Earth to look at the area. There may be a few trees scattered around, but it’s not the orchard I remember. (Zoom in to see more detail.)
