Early Peaches!

Small peaches developing on the branch 
The peach trees which were here on the property when we moved in did not produce anything last year. We pruned them and allowed the chickens to roam through the orchard depositing their manure and eating bugs.  We considered taking the trees down but, fortunately it seems, we were too busy during the winter months to do so.  Much to our surprise, this year the 2 old peach trees are LOADED with fruit! We suspect these trees are an early variety of peach, but are not sure as to what variety they are.
Full branches of small peaches!
Between the warm weather and the likelihood of these being an early variety, we may see some peaches in our near future--unless the squirrels get them all first!
