Outstanding!!

that first year tree sounds like a winner!!

Peaches in the summer time…apples in the fall…if I can’t get the girl I love ….don’t want none at all!! Garcia’s   Shady Grove lyrics!

wish I had room for fruit trees!!

thanks. i dont have a lot of room either but i read that peach trees can self polinate with the wind so i went with peach. i guess other fruit trees need more then one to polinate. the tree has one more peach im waiting for it to soften up a bit. looking forward to how many ill get next year.

I don't even know what to do with it all this year I planted way too much lol

Try looking for a local food pantry.  There is a church here in my town (Brick), that gladly accepts garden vegetables for their pantry and donations.  Can always knock on the neighbor's doors too; I do that as well; keeps me in their good graces and they leave me and my chickens alone :) .

How did ya do it?  I pickled mine for the first time the other day. Jalapeños and cherry peppers. Sliced them up and put them in mason jars with crushed garlic cloves on the bottom, boiled some white vinegar with some salt and sugar, poured the boiling vinegar over the peppers and let it all sit in the jar for 30 mins before sealing and refrigerating. After two days of soaking they’re delicious. Hopefully they’ll stay good for two weeks or so.
