I Really Love Your Peaches

by - April 14, 2010

I've been watching the peach trees ever since they were covered in blossoms to look for signs of summer fruit. This afternoon I went out to check, and to my delight, the older tree was covered in these half-inch peaches. The tree we just planted even had several fuzzy ones! I am crossing my fingers that we beat the birds and bugs to the ripe ones this summer. It also looks like my blueberry and strawberry bushes are in business this season.

The rest of the garden is mostly in the ground. Here's a count of what has been seeded and sprouted this year:
  • 30 sqft bed of peas
  • 30 sqft section of corn (~25-30 plants)
  • Eight hills of squash (3 breeds)
  • Six hills of watermelon
  • One hill of canteloupe
  • 18-20 tomato plants (6 or 7 different breeds)
  • Three buckets of potatoes (2 breeds)
  • Lettuces (sprinkled about in the various beds)
  • Onions (3 breeds, various locations)
  • Herbs: basil and cilantro
  • Twelve pepper plants (various bells and Anaheim)
  • Flowers: marigolds and holyhocks (the ones started indoors)
  • One 20' row of asparagus
Seeded but not yet sprouted:
  • Two 8' rows of okra
  • Dill
  • Flowers: nasturtium, six 'blaze' calla lilly rhizomes, two elephant ears
  • Sweet Italian peppers
