When I saw this tree, first thing I thought of was my Grandpa Julian. He had a Peach tree in the front yard and every Summer that tree would give off so much fruit that sometimes, peaches would fall to the ground if, you weren't quick to pick them. Those peaches were drip-down-the-chin juicy and oh so very sweet! He would take extra care of his tree and would not let any of his grand children near it, until all peaches were ripe and ready to be picked! I remember my grandmother would take a plastic bag and fill the bag with gorgeous red/orange riped peaches she would then give them away to her family, friends, and neighbors. Sometimes, she would have so much that she would peel, blend, and freeze. Later we would eat it like a sorbet.
I think I will buy myself a Peach tree for my new back-yard and think of my Grandparents as I prune, pick, and freeze my fruit.
