The Peach Tree Experiment - Results

In June I had posted about how our peach tree's main limb had split from the weight of the peaches and how my Jeff proceeded to "fix" it. (If you missed it you can check it out here) 

We watched the tree closely, and felt that it had been a success since we only saw the leaves on about 3 small branches die.

Next we had to face a new problem...insects. Now considering I had talked my Jeff into using Organicide in place of his normal product of choice, which definitely wasn't organic, it was looking like it may be MY FAULT, lol.  This is what most of the peaches look like:

Not good. All in all, we were able to harvest some, we learned a few lessons along the way and I am working on preserving a portion while listening to my Jeff list the things he wants me to make with them right now. More to come.....
