Tomato Time


The tomato crop has being going off like a frog in a sock this season. Even with the possums eating their share, I've had more than enough to eat, keep for preserves, save for seeds, and still have plenty to give away.

Peaches

My peach tree has been going strong for three years! It's survived extreme dry heat, hard frosts, and a nasty bout of leaf curl last year, but finally it's happy, healthy and has actually produced some fruit. Okay, the possums took a single bite out of over half the crop, but that still leaves some for me! (guess who forgot to put the net over the tree)
