Peaches and Blackberries

April 14, 2013

● Peaches
The Dward Belle of Georgia and Dwarf Hale Haven peach trees are now 5 or 6 years old.  We have never gotten fruit from the front tree, but usually get a few from the back one - but only if we are vigilant enough to keep away the birds and the squirrels.  We weren't sure if the back tree would produce fruit, but it already has some baby peaches on it.  Yay!!

● Blackberries
We planted the blackberries 5 years ago - and have never gotten any fruit off of them.  They always seem to wither on the vine.  We also don't take good care of them, and often forget to water them.  I dug in the bed, pulled up tons of weeds, and found that some of the blackberries had sprouted new plants.  i would love to actually get some blackberries this year.  Maybe if I keep on top of watering them and fertilizing???
