Even the busted branches are still green and alive - and heavy with fruit. Soon I'll have a ton of peaches all grown right here in my yard - these were my compost peaches.
I talked to an orchardman and he said the tree would be fine and to trim it very hard next winter. Even the one that broke in half will be OK and probably better because it will have a root system for a tree twice its size!
Just look at them!
So I'm just waiting for these little beauties to be ripe. Then it will be nothing but peaches for every meal! I'm definitely making more of this! There will also be a lot of pie.
This little tree is totally hanging on!
Gotta go - the hot weather continues and the forecast for today is "Fire Swamp" conditions. My only goal is to keep everyone alive. Heat index will be over 100* for today and tomorrow. Looks like we'll get some relief - and some rain - on Saturday.
Keep cool everyone! Do you have any ripe fruit yet?
