Woohoo...our own peaches!
Oh yeah! Getting ready for producing our own peaches this year. We have started planting a small orchard (well, orchard is a bit of an exaggeration - more like a couple of rows of fruit trees, but orchard sounds good doesn't it?).
A month ago, adorned in my pink cords and pink jumper - who said gardening couldn't be glamourous?...ahem!! - on a rather cold and misty, March morning I planted out six peach trees (baby gold 6 and baby gold 9 varieties for you fruit tree geeks out there!) some will be eaters and some will be for bottling, freezing and jamming...yum, yum...can't wait.
In exactly one month, these babies have flowered with beautiful pink blossom and I had to share the photos with you!
