For the past several days I have been watering and checking on my peaches, especially my Flordaking Peach tree, Prunus persica ‘Flordaking’. The fruit is almost ripe and should be ready to pick next week.
But to my surprise, this morning, some furry vandal, probably a ‘Coon, climbed up into the tree, broke some branches and knocked down 8 or 10 peaches. It looks like some late night guard duty for me!
On a happier note our wild garlic, Allium vineale, has a beautiful flower and is coming into full bloom.
We have put up 14, 1 gallon, bags of spinach, Spinacae oleracea, and have had numerous spinach salads. We’ll plant more spinach this fall!
