Garden: Peaches

Here are my peaches this year. I haven't had any peaches on this tree for the last few years, it almost died and has been making a slow comeback. This year, the tree was loaded! I hadn't realized how many until I came back to see what I could salvage.

We harvested in mid August and then again a few weeks later. The later ones were riper and I was able to easily remove the pit. Some of the under ripe ones I put in a paper bag to ripen. This would have been fine, except I forgot about them and I had some yucky peach mush to clean up.

I made peach pie and peach refrigerator jam. I also have a full gallon bag in the freezer with sliced peaches. I'll use them in the winter when we want a taste of summer. Hope next year's harvest is even better!

You are very lucky to get any of the peaches. I had several on a young tree & something got most of them at night. I put a plastic bag around the last few left on tree. They were so good after they got ripe. Next spring I will tie all of them up in a bag to save them. Thanks for sharing, good luck.

What an outstanding story! Perhaps we gave up on on one of our poor peach tree too early. But our other 2 trees are currently loaded! I have a great recipe for spiced peach butter. Will try to post it somewhere on this site asap!
