O and P and the mid-sized Peaches

This year our peach tree produced two peaches that grew enough to be consumed by humans. In previous years the tree produced several peaches that were been consumed by unknown agents of evil while they were still small and very unripe, so we were quite thrilled to get any.

O and P each got the honor of picking a peach. They were perfectly ripe, not too sweet, not too soft, and I hope we get more next year.

Gavin estimates the peaches cost about $50 each once the expenses of organic fertilizer/plant food, dirt, wine barrel, tree, and water are all added up. He also, rather begrudgingly, agrees that I did NOT kill the tree has he’d initially predicted I would.
