Peachy!

This is just one branch on the peach tree I planted last year. See each of those flower buds about to open?

Those COULD turn into peaches!

The trick is to not get my hopes too high. I only have one tree... this peach tree isn't supposed to need a different variety to cross pollinate.... but we shall see. Also peach trees can have a lot of pests and diseases. And then we could get bud-killing frosts... although there are different stages/temperature vulnerabilities I need to look up.

Sooo we'll just see what happens later this summer. I won't count on making pies or cobblers this summer. ;-)
