Randall, excellent news!  Rain just when you need it.

king, I don't know if this helps.  I have read a number of references stating that peaches from seed usually come out similar to their parents.  Peaches are not as hybridized as some fruits, so are not as unpredictable.  My grandfather grew his peaches from seeds, although that was a different era.  So maybe, you could find some you like and grow from seed.  The disadvantage is it takes quite a number of years before they start bearing.   I have some peach seedlings, volunteers.   I don't know if they will produce, but I like growing stuff.

Ning with tree in my front yard, Windmill Palm also known as Chusan Palm also known as Chinese Windmill Palm.  Trachycarpus fortunei.  This tree has survived winters below 10 F.  Last year it got down to 8 F.  Its one of the most cold hardy palms.  14 years old.

An inch of rain overnight will do wonders to my garden--including weeds! Everything's up and looking good, except parsnips. I finally got some sweet potatoes planted.

I was just thinking if you did could I get the stick you remove
Comment by Randall Smith on June 6, 2014 at 7:28am

Thanks Joan. You got me--whites taste a far cry better!

King, I hate to admit it, except for my apricot tree pruning I did this winter, I seldom prune my fruit trees. Two reasons: they look awful and it just causes them to sprout more "suckers". Oh yes, plus I'm lazy and don't like ladders!

Randall do your peach trees but chance need some purning this summer
Comment by Joan Denoo on June 5, 2014 at 8:49am

Randall, I need a definition of your sentence:

"They taste a far cry from the yellow ones." Does that mean far cry better or worse than yellow ones? 

I very much enjoy following your gardening experiences. You have helpful information; lots of humor to lighten the day, as well.
