My early peaches are getting ripe, and the trees are loaded this year. My brother and I picked three bushels off it Wednesday,
and there is another two bushels that will be ripe in the next week or so. He only took half a bushel for himself and I gave my only neighbor,
(the rest are, as he puts it "just people living around us") half a bushel last night. So I'm knee deep in putting up peaches before they go bad.
The trees are so loaded this year they only got plumb size , some a little bigger, but boy are they sweet. :D
I got them all washed, and sorted yesterday, and used the ones getting overripe to make a cobbler last night. MMMMMMMMMMMM !!!!!!!! that's some good eatin'. ;)
Who else is enjoying fresh peaches off their trees??

Cling peaches ripen early and freestone later in the season.
Both trees were suposed to be freestone Elberta peaches when I planted them 15 years ago.
One must have been marked wrong. My other tree still has little green rocks on it.
Freestones are much easier to work up. I usually get this many peaches off both trees in a season, both are dwarf trees.
I've about got all that my bride and I will eat over the winter. Twelve pints of peaches, and
ten pints of preserves, from two big rounded up bushels of peaches. ;)
