I will finally get peaches

 

I love your peaches.  We had a peach tree that took 10 years to grow to maturity and finally start producing peaches....and a year or two later it got some disease and died.  How long did it take your tree to mature and start producing?

Oh, I forgot to mention....and this is very important.....I've read where you need to have at least 2 peach trees for best results for cross pollination.  My guess it one of my neighbors has peach trees because all we ever had was one.  If I buy another peach tree, I will buy tree of them.....in case one dies.

 

this is our trees third year.   Aphids got them last year.   It is a self pollinating variety, so only 1 is fine.   Reno had a lot of rain in the spring and all the fruit trees are hanging low with fruit.   A friend has two apricot trees that are load d.   We preserved some, and made jam with some more, and they are still full of fruit.   I am going to make a BBQ sauce.

imade BBQSauce.    I started with that recipe but found it too sweet, so I amped up the salt, spice and acidity.

We put up 8 qts of salsa.  My neighbor grows banana peppers, jalapenos and bell peppers.  We grow tomatoes and garlic.  Had to buy the red onions and cilantro.
