The tree was covered with nets until the first one fell off (peach that is, not net).  Then I pulled the nets off.  There was only about a week until the lot had been picked.

I can't believe you're not getting fruit fly stings in your peaches!  Grapes look fantastic - jealous.

The garden is looking good Andy. You'll be enjoying the lemonade fruit for sure.
I am right behind you with tromboccino seedling freshly in the ground and a new nectarine trees. Susan and you convinced me to give these 2 a go.
