Ah! I See That You Have Found the Sacred Peach Tree of Heavenly Wisdom! Oh! Is That What This Is? I'm So Sorry! I Just Thought it Was a Regular Peach Tree

Dinner tonight consisted of yellow squash, green bell peppers, green onions, and tomatoes, all grown in our garden and picked an hour before the meal. For desert we walked out to our tree: 

and picked a few peaches. 

They are the most delicious peaches I have ever had! I think the fact that they are still warm from the sun is a big contributor. 

This peach tree is the second tree to give us a harvest. Our apple tree (planted last year, the same time as the peach tree) yielded two whole apples. We'll definitely get more peaches than that!  In a few more weeks I think we'll have a harvest of lemons and oranges as well. I don't think we'll get plums this year, but we might. I know the blood oranges, macadamia nuts, grapefruits and avocados will have to wait another year, but the trees themselves are doing great. The avocado was actually the first tree we planted (the blood orange and macadamia were the last) but I know they take the longest to produce fruit. That's okay, I can wait! 


  1. They look delicious. But you know I will be bringing processed crap food to feed myself, right? Since I am allergic to fruit and stuff.

    However when you get the macadamia nuts going, I will probably never, ever leave your backyard.


  2. I just need to plant a chocolate tree right next to the macadamia nut tree, and that will be all meals, all the time.

  3. How wonderful! I was just gifted some fresh-built garden boxes and I'm thinking I'd like to get your counsel before I start filling them! My sister is visiting this week, but maybe we can schedule a time the next week.
