warm, sunkissed peach. sooo yummy.

today i went outside to water my porch garden. the peach tree was looking droopy, it does it more now because of the weather, i have to water everyday.

i'd already noticed that someone or some creature ate my strawberries. and most of my limes were gone (probably the college kids drinking beer next door: oh hey! lime! for my dos equis!). I haven't had any of the limes yet.

but my peach always stayed.. even thru the hailstorm, most of them survived (even though the leaves were scratched and ragged from the golf ball sized hail)

today as i was watering my droopy peachy.. i touched a fruit and it felt soft to me! so i plucked it. said thank you.
brought it back, rinsed it a little and bit into it.

oh my goodness.

that peach was warm from the sun and sooo sweet soo delicious.

it wasn't a pretty peach, with lots of imperfections.. and it was small. and i'd watched it grow for the last 3 months.

and it was amazingly good. so good. best peach i've ever eaten.
definitely worth all the watering and fertilizing and taking care of.

How big is your peach tree (like height and girth)? I'm thinking of planting one in a spot in our backyard that used to have a shed and now has ugly nothing.

The same thing happened to our strawberries: we found that hanging them would at least get you some of the fruit.

There is nothing like food you've grown yourself.

I planted a strawberry patch last year and it really bore fruit this year. I found that if I covered the patch in plastic netting (bird netting from Home Depot) I got to eat most of the strawberries myself, although the slugs still got their share.

My next goal is a fig tree...

Interestingly, a U-pick peach place outside of Austin informs us that there are "no peaches for you!": http://www.barsanaorchards.com/

Never stop
Never stop enjoying the small joys of life. All kids know how to, too many adults forget. Glad to see you're not among them.
