Those blood peaches sure look the goods.
Do you get a large harvest?

Hi gnol,
Just did a rough count--abt 150 protected by today's nets.
1st major crop for tree as it is only a few years old and grown from a stone. Some good size peaches on it.

Finally got all the tilling done, and it has warmed up to the point we can plant. Watermelons, Cantaloupe, Tomatoes, Herbs and Leeks are in, it just finding the time to get the rest planted...

That looks beautiful Bent. How do you irrigate such a large area?

Primarily rainfall, if there are extended periods without, we do have a tap we can use. This is the 1st year with a garden at the new house so we will see...I am more concerned with what the Critters might do!

Man, I do not even want to think about that! But it may have to happen...My sisters garden, guess who had to do all the roto-tilling? With a small Troy Built because the rows had to be 3 feet, so could not use a cultivator on the LS tractor! yeah!

My sister has visions of a lot of canning and such...I could see it, but where are you gonna store it? Would need a 19th Century root cellar...Although, it could all be planted in sweet corn as far as I am concerned...given enough butter n salt, I could eat 10 ears for a dinner! Onions, that is another staple and some leeks...If I had several hogs, some tomato's and lettuce and we would be set!
