My O'Henry peach is in full bloom. The deep pink color of the blossoms will look fantastic when the tree gets a few years older. I don't expect much fruit from the trees this year. They're too immature to hold fruit. Most of the petals are falling away as the trees abort the colorful confetti from the slender branches. Fine. I would love some fruit; but I have this season charted to bend the branches (espalier) into position. So far, so good.
Tomorrow, I will try to go to the local farmers' market to shop for heirloom tomato plants. A woman brings in wonderful plants along with a reference binder to help shopping gardeners. Maybe she will have eggplants too. The raised bed is ready for these plants. Report and photo to follow.
