Today, we could no longer ignore our peach tree. We had to harvest some of the peaches before the tree broke under the weight of all the peaches – that may be a slight exaggeration but the tree was almost touching the ground. The above picture are the box full of good peaches. Although we probably picked off a hundred peaches, there still seems to be a couple hundred or more left. I must say when I found out we had fruit trees in our back yard, I was pretty excited. Now I realize it is just a lot of work. It’s nice, but perhaps I would enjoy it more if I had more time to can the peaches, make peach cobbler, or give the tree proper attention. Kaylen really loves the peach tree. She had a ball “helping” me sort out the good from the bad peaches (her help was mixing up my piles!). We still had fun as a family harvesting some of the peaches. The best part was actually enjoying the fruits of labor by having some fresh peaches from our backyard!
