Peaches! Waa!

Sunday, July 10, 2011

Okay so three years ago my DH and I got a little peach tree and planted it in our front yard. Last year we got our first small harvest of peaches (maybe 15 small ones off our 6 foot tree). They were picked when ripe and super yummy! This year there were maybe 25-30 small peaches that were a few weeks from being ripe. We don't spray or anything so there was some bug damage, but eh, I'm not that picky.

Well this morning DH and I went to check on his pumpkins vines and noticed that SOMEONE STOLE ALL OUR PEACHES! They took every single peach. They also broke one small branch.

Every single unripe, bug damaged peach. This is not something a random person walking by could do, they would need a bag or basket because they didn't leave a single one.

No, I'm not really that broke up about it. I really did want to try one though, they were great last year.

So how was your Sunday?

    Peach thieves, they ought to hang em! In our old neighborhood, they pulled our flowers out of the ground. Turns out they caught the culprits later that year panhandling around town, giving flowers (not ours but probably a neighbor's flowers) out to folks (nice touch).

    You need a dog. A big, barky, scary, slobbery dog.

    That's nuts.

    I hope that whoever took the peaches really needed them, and that they were fed well as a result.

    WOW....that is too weird. Who would do that? I mean...I guess there are people who do that kind of thing...but....wow.

    And while it may not be a big deal that all the peaches were stolen...the fact that someone would do that is just...disturbing. I take it your front yard is not fenced? (Not that that should matter.)

    It is kinda cool that you have a peach tree...we don't have those here. We did have 2 pear trees which we gave away. We have 4 apple trees still.

I have a garden every year and this year its great but in the past I did it with family and they let there kids break my plants etc.. I am like its a lot of hard work and not cheap to get it started.lol emoticon

    Some people just have no shame!! Sorry you were visited by the fruit thief. :( We had veggies stolen out of our garden last year, and it pissed me off, after all the work we put into the garden.
