Brooklyn Dirt & Dreaming of Peaches

Back in February, the hubs and I went to a talk on "dirt". While we were there, we had our photo taken by a writer from Brooklyn Bread.  Brooklyn Bread is a monthly community magazine that features community events.  Our photo made it to the feature on Brooklyn Dirt. We are the last photo, 2nd row right.  Pretty cool.
Here's a look at what's happening in our backyard.  The most exciting thing happening right now is that our peach tree is blooming!  I love the pink blossoms.  It is so pretty!
Here's a look at the whole tree.  The tree is pretty small.  I'm not sure how old it is, since it was here when we moved in over a year ago.  I'm guessing it's a 3-4 year old tree.  Last year we lost all the peaches in a big wind storm.  I'm hoping this year some of the peaches actually get big enough to ripen on the tree.  I hope!

  1. You're famous :) That is cool.
    The peach blossoms are really pretty, hope you get some peaches this year. Our apple tree is close to blooming, I think the flowers are as exciting to see as the fruit.

  5. Congrats on making the news! We used to have a peach tree in the side yard. The blossoms were so pretty I clipped a branch once to bring inside to force -- then I realized I was jeopardizing future peaches. Better to just enjoy them on the tree!

  6. I'm so envious, I'd love to have a peach tree but I'm just too far north. There's nothing like the taste of a home-grown peach.

  7. Home grown peaches?? Wow. Our next door neighbors have pears, but peaches? I don't know anyone who has them here in NYC! Incredible!

    I hope they come back for you! The blossoms sure are gorgeous.
