The dwarf peach tree in our yard was planted about 5 years ago and never did very well. This year was the exception and its absolutely loaded with peaches. Alan noticed birds pecking at the fruit, so he put some netting over the tree. Last week, we had a wind storm and the tree actually fell over! One small branch broke off but thankfully the majority are fine. We bought two metal supports and through some effort straightened the poor tree up. Its so heavy with fruit, hopefully the supports will protect it from further damage from the wind.
Today, we're expecting it to warm up considerably..supposed to be in the low 100s. By the weekend, its predicted to be 110 degrees. So glad we have solar panels now as it would have been way to expensive otherwise to run our AC. Last month, our electric bill was only 77 cents!
