So, I went back out to look at the peach tree. I haven't done anything to it since I thinned out all the branches (like I said, not a gardener), but I think it was looking pretty good.
But the peaches looked pretty yummy, if a bit small and still green. They're plumping up nicely, especially in comparison to all the discarded ones that have shriveled up into skin covered seeds under the tree. And, the peaches on the tree are, to my delight, quite fuzzy. Fuzzy fruit is such a strange concept.
