Peachy


Texas is not known to be "peach country," which is a real shame since I LOVE peaches (grew up on sweet peaches in North Carolina). Peaches need a certain amount of cold, cold weather and we just don't get enough here. Despite this my husband gave me a peach tree 3 or 4 years ago for Vietnamese New Year (Tet) and we planted it. We had ONE (!) wonderfully sweet peach after the first year and nothing last year. This year is looking up because this guy is one of several we've spotted!

I love mangos. Never seen one on a tree, that would be neat. If/when this ripens I will post an update.

Well maybe you will get more Thiénnie. At my granparent's place in the Westside of San Antonio, they had pecan (watch out for the yucky fuzzy white worms), peach and pear trees (had to make sure we got these before the birds). We also had a granada (I think these are called pomegrantes in English) bush in the back. All of these bloomed every year so maybe yours will eventually too.

I just started going through your archives so I hope you don't mind getting comments on these old posts. The area around Fredricksburg, Texas (up in the hill country) is actually known for its peaches.

They sometimes sell them in grocery stores around here in season. They'll always be labeled "Fredricksburg Peaches."
