Life's a Peach

We've decided to try a garden again this year. In addition, Joe planted a peach tree. He wanted to get away from the traditional citrus trees grown in AZ, so peach it is. Yes, it's scrawny, but ain't it pretty (in an anorexic-tree-sort-of-way)? I love the little, pink flowers. I hope it will live and one day produce some tasty fruit! We're also trying raspberries, carrots, potatoes, peppers, and tomatoes. Crossing our fingers that it will be a productive year!

Now we just got to keep the kids away from the plants.

just make sure your deep water them in the early mornings. That's what was successful when we lived in Phoenix in my gardens.They will look dry on the top but if you take your finger and push down into the dirt you will feel it's damp or wet. If you water at night it will get moldy because of the heat and they will die. Herbs do well too.
