I’ve learned to not count my peaches before they’re picked but look at the peach trees.
Could that tree have any more blooms? I’ve never seen that many blooms on one of our trees. It was so full of bees and butterflies yesterday.
In the front yard, we have three trees. The first one blooms, about two weeks later, the second one blooms and about a week later, the third one blooms. This is the third one and it’s a bit different from the others. The blooms are different, and so are the peaches. They’re a bit smaller and they are so sweet . . almost too sweet for most people. I love them.
The wind was blowing and I couldn’t get the limb to be still so the picture was blurry but quite a few of the early peaches look like this one – two baby peaches that are connected. There are way too many peaches and I’ll have to thin them so I went ahead and pinched that one off. Vince was saying “NO! Don’t do it!” He doesn’t want to thin the peaches but it has to be done or we’ll get small, hard peaches and it’s too hard on the tree.
I’ll wait a week probably and start thinning the peaches on this tree that was the first to bloom.
We’re hopeful for a good crop of peaches but have learned not to get our hopes up too much.
