I made a post about my first peach harvest last year on the 10th. This year I decided to wait until the fruit was totally ripe before I attempted a harvest. I tasted one a couple of weeks ago and it was just not quite there. I was in no hurry to pick. The tree was safe behind bird netting. I now know I have a self-harvesting tree. We had a minor wind storm from a dying thunderstorm and it knocked a bunch of fruit off of the tree. I was able to get out there before the ants discovered them. I ended up with about 50 little peaches. Over the next couple of days I got another 10. What to do with all of that fruit? Freeze it! I blanched them which made their skins fall right off. I then cut them up and threw them in plastic bags. Since the fruits are small, I'm getting about 8 peaches per cup. So now I have enough for a cobbler and a pie. And there STILL a few dozen still on the tree!
