This year our peach tree produced so many peaches. It was so great. We were a bit worried about it (and we still are) because Rob found boars at the base of the tree. So we didn't know if it would produce any peaches. But this year was our best harvest yet. I think we picked about 160 pounds of peaches. And those were only the ones we weighed. We also gave a bunch away to neighbors and friends.
The kids love to help pick the peaches...except that it makes them itchy from the little hairs on the peaches.
It's a family effort.
They were all so helpful. We had to prop up some of the branches with pieces of wood because they were being weighed down by all the juicy peaches.
After we did our picking, they each got to enjoy a yummy peach on the porch.
Finley loved them!
William and his family came to visit and got to help harvest our peaches. I love how these two can just pick up right where they left off and be best friends again.
The bowl was so heavy!
My neighbor shared some of their white peaches with us. They gave us a bag of them to eat and theirs were much smaller than ours. Thinning the peaches when they are small is so hard for me to do, but it is totally worth it! THe one from our tree is on the left. :)
