had windfall fruit to give away."
But THIS year, for the first time, the fruit is coming in such quantities that we can hardly keep up. Fruit falls to the ground daily, even as we try to pick the ripe ones before they fall and get bruised. We eat peaches morning, noon and night. We give peaches to neighbors. We took peaches to friends last weekend. What a crop of delicious peaches!
Here are a few photos of our peach tree (in Holyoke, Mass).
I don't recall having peach trees in Danvers in my childhood, but we had other fruit, which I'll write about in my next entry.

I did not expect such a bounty of fruit from the very small tree we had planted in August 2015.
