Peachy Keen

We have had a great peachy weekend. On Saturday we planted 10 of our peach trees that I raised from stones starting early last winter. Here they are next to a swale topped with tagasaste.

We still have a dozen trees that we will give away and sell.  Screen shot 2015-03-01 at 6.10.45 PM

Here is Verti checking out the recent work.

This is the reverse angle of the peaches and tagasaste.

Verti watered the peach trees thoroughly.  Screen shot 2015-03-01 at 6.12.32 PM

On Sunday we went to our old house to pick some of the abundant Black Boy peaches.

We picked this box and it hardly made a dent in the fruit still on the trees.

Yum is all I can say.

  1. I love the peaches, how do you have so little rot? We have had a dry year, but have just heaps of rot in our blackboy peaches. Maybe the seaweed? Ours taste really nice, they are great to have, but need to be eaten or dealt with very fast. What was your selection process for the peach stone seedlings?

    1. We have had essentially no rot for 3 years on our Black Boy peaches. They are in a sheltered coastal location so a little bit of salt air may ward off fungus and diseases – no curly leaf either. Selecting stones I just choose the largest ones as I eat them!
