Vickie is tending this little tree with lots of TLC…
“I love peaches and growing up in a farming family I have always loved planting, watching things grow and then harvesting. At our old house, we had the most amazing peach tree and ever since moving to our new house…. over 10 years ago now…. I have wanted to plant some fruit trees.
Last year, on a Costco visit, I saw FRUIT TREES!!! I went home, got the truck, headed back and procured 6 of them for my very own!!! 2 apple, 1 pear, 1 plum, 1 apricot and ONE PEACH!!! I had them planted…. initially on our neighbors property and they had to be moved a week later. I watered diligently, as they were planted where our sprinkler system does not water. Low and behold…. I received one perfect peach at the end of the summer!! I have babied this tree above the others and I believe it has survived the summer, fall and hopefully the winter.
I chose this as my project, as I am anxious to see what changes happen in a year and want to catch it flowering and hopefully growing fruit…. I am excited for this challenge!!”
