So I am not a peach expert but I felt it and it seemed ripe and I picked it. It smelled wonderful and was firm but not too firm. We took pictures of it and then I set it on the counter until this morning when I ate it. Yes, it was perfectly ripe and the best peach I have ever eaten.
I need to do a little reading up on how to trim the tree. I have trimmed it a couple of times in the fall and it still does not seem to produce man flowers each spring. I need to see if I am doing it at the wrong time for this area.
In other news, not everything is "peachy". I am no longer working for the Boys and Girls Club. The stress of working for someone who doesn't like me and was never going to treat me right was just too much. I do still work for Mistletoe State Park and I am still loving it there but now I am looking for a job to fill in during the week. It is no rush though, we will be fine until I find something.
I am enjoying having some time here again though it is terribly hot this week and the air conditioners really do not keep us cool even inside. We basically do everything in the mornings when it is cooler.
I am getting in some violin practice again, working on a crochet afghan and thinking about when I will butcher those meat birds as they are now ready (it will not be this week when temps are over 100 F. every day!)
Just so you know, I never did find my Sassy cat. She has been missing since the day before yesterday. I do hope she comes out soon. And Phil has figured out how he can fix the line to the hot water heater which wasn't as easy as it seems since this is an old doublewide and they no longer make those lines but there is a way to fix them with a special kind of cuppling that will attach the old line to the new line they now have so you don't have to replace the whole thing.
