A Single Peach

Saturday, June 16th, 2012

At the end of last summer I decided I wasn't going to do anything to my peach tree this summer. For the past few I've sprayed for the bugs and netted for the birds and I still only end up with a handful of peaches. So I said screw it I'll just let nature take over and see what I get this year.

We had a week or so of very nice weather very early in the spring this year. It caused everything to start growing and most things that budded to die because of the following frosts that came. Local apple and peach crops were severely affected by this and my tree was one of the victims. It has blossoms all over it in early march and every one of them died shortly thereafter. Or so I had thought. A few days ago I took a look at the tree and was surprised to find one peach still alive and growing. The odds this one will survive all the way to the end of August are probably slim, but one is better than none. On the plus side, the fact that this tree has almost no fruit means it's putting all that energy into getting bigger. It's noticeably larger than it was even a few months ago.
