I’ve heard it said that a watched pot never boils and I’m believe a watched peach never ripens.
They keep getting bigger and they’re gorgeous but they are so very slowly ripening I must have squeezed 50 peaches yesterday and found about a dozen ripe ones. The tree next to it is going to pass it up and be ripe before this one is.
The birds have found a few of them but I’m really surprised at how few are damaged but they aren’t ripe yet so I might should hold my thoughts about the birds eating them til we’ve had our fill of of them.
I did see on my Facebook memories that three years ago I had picked 8 gallons of figs in one day and so far, we don’t have a single ripe fig. Who knows what’s up with the fruit. Could be the Grand Solar Minimum but I’m not saying it’s definitely that because I don’t have a clue. I just know we’ve always had figs by now.
Surely by the end of this week, they’ll be getting ripe!

Hard to wait on them, but how wonderful to have them. Especially ripening slowly, you should have them over a longer period of time, instead of all at once, too.

Looking good! But just like when a baby is due, you never can tell for sure!! Only God knows!

Those peaches are beautiful. I can’t imagine growing perfect fruit….Like a picture. Paula in KY
The fruit will all get ripe the minute you leave to take Addie home. Isn’t that always the way?
