A Peach Tree Saga Victory

Those of you who have been following my peach tree saga and the battle against the squirrels will understand the depths of my satisfaction here. This particular peach was bruised a little from pressing against a branch, so I cut into it a little early, before it was quite ripe — still tasty, though, and I’ll grill the slices to soften and bring out the sweetness.

There are still close to a hundred peaches on the five-year-old tree, and I am watching them like a hawk to spot them as they ripen (no green left, slight give when you press, ripens on outside and top of tree first) and snatch them before the squirrels do.
