For the last 2 years, I've seen peaches start growing my my peach tree, and every year, I've eaten exactly none!! 2010, lost them to a windy storm. 2011, they were lost to some furry critty, likely a squirrel, that ate every single peach!
netting around the peaches when I started noticing they were getting stolen off the tree. The netting did not deter the critters, they managed to get around the netting or eat through the netting. Jerks!
