Diary of a new peach tree...

A cutting of a peach tree we can't get any more. (Mountain Rose)

A tree grown to be rootstock for a new peach.

We place the cutting in the sliced tree and wrap it.

It looks like it will take, we won't know until spring.

Now it's late March . It looks good!!

Peach Bloom comes early.

The new block of peaches on the lower farm look great.
Lots of thinning to do today.

Spring has Sprung..

Strawberries are out from under the row covers and protected from the weather by the high tunnels. Come on strawberries...maybe a few more days until bloom with the warm weather we've been having.
