My first peaches!

FirstPeaches (256k image)

My little bare root peach tree, planted this spring had three peaches. It aborted one along the way but I just picked the remaining two. They are Soooo yummy! Should have got one years ago! I had a hard time deciding but I went ahead and shared with Himself. It was hard giving it up! The ants which had also found one thought so, too. :laugh: The tree came with a warning that it could be three years before it produced a crop. Well, I guess 2 peaches don’t really make a crop but I got to test that I did not go wrong in choosing this variety. It’s a semi-dwarf Red Haven.
Now we have the place picked out for the Heritage Hyde King apple that is a graft off Grandmother’s tree, but I’m not sure where I’m going to find sunny room for the apricot and pear that I’d like to add as well. I need a couple more acres of good bottom land! πŸ˜‰

Whoopee!

I picked three yellow pear tomatoes yesterday and the first RED one today! πŸ˜€ Got the Squeezo ready to go because there are a LOT of them on those 4 bushes! More than two people can eat, and probably more than 4, if the cousin come back up. too cool. My toms the last few years have struggled to grow a half dozen little fruit so this is pretty cool.

Cat Tower

Randy installed an awning on a cabin and it came in this very large & sturdy cardboard roll which I snagged! I have the basic bit done, tho that shortest one needs to have a couple inches cut off the bottom. Now I have to cover it with carpet and fasten them together. The cats are going to love this one this winter when they become house cats once again.:hehe:
Today I had my Doc appt and he said my blood work looks good and I should eat less and exercise more, of course. πŸ˜€
But now that I’m home again I’m going to start measuring the warp for my rugs. I want to warp on for two of them so it’s going to be the most I’ve ever put on, I think. It’s pleasantly cool this morning so I’m hanging the warping board outside.
We have severe thunder storm warnings for tonight and tomorrow but it’s nice so far. Hope you’re having a lovely day, too! πŸ™‚
