Ye of Little Faith

I really need to put my faith in God much more than I do.
Despite this Springs wild weather & late season wet snow fall we have Peaches on the trees.

The first pic is the tree closest to the garage which produces smaller Peaches as well as a smaller harvest.
Hopefully all that will change this year. We were told by the next door neighbor who is facing foreclosure that the bank will have ownership next month. I plan to lobby hard on having the 150 year old Maple that blocks out the sunshine, cut down. I'll be using phrases like litigation, damage to our many quality tools and possessions in housed in our garage when a limb decides to come crashing down.

In the meantime the Mylar mirror I've been erecting has been working out well all things considered.

Second pic shows what some sun light can do for a tree. Would you believe that there is only a distance of  8 feet between the two ?
Apparently 8 feet can mean all the difference whether it's shade or the Berlin Wall.

Bigger than a golf ball smaller than a tennis ball.

  1. I can taste the pie now! And, by the way, has it really been three years since your pantry challenge....ughhhhh!!!!

  2. Lol, yeah it has been awhile 'suppose it's time for another pantry challenge. Should be interesting.

  3. I love old trees but they can sometimes be a problem. We have two old oaks that shade the house beautifully from the setting sun, but they're dying. One of these days they'll have to come down too. Interesting about the mylar. Great idea.


Thanks, good to know there are other's with this interest
