|Brown Rot. Our peaches are rotting on the trees before they ripen.|
|This is all we got from one tree. We should be getting 5 times this much from each tree. They won't even be edible. But we'll use them to make peach brandy. Jane from Hard Work Homestead has a great recipe.|
|Adding insult to injury, SVBs are on the attack. At least we got one healthy squash out of this plant. Thankfully we have several other productive plants.|
We're really sad about our peaches this year. A 200 pound harvest has turned into a 20 pound failure. We really count on them for our winter store. Aaarrrggg! We'll be lucky to get 5 gallons of wine and a little brandy this year.
I must say, for all the loss, there are also great gains. There always seems to be enough and I'm thankful for that.
