A good tree produces good fruit.

We have a 5 year old peach tree that is producing fruit for the first time this year. We're pretty excited about it and so we walk out every morning to see how it's doing, make sure the branches are supported well enough so they don't break, scare away any intruders or thieves looking to steal or destroy. (mainly birds) and give it some water and walk around and smile at it.

Sounds just like kids. You nuture and invest in them, support them when they need help, run off any bad influences and the like, feed and clothe 'em and walk around smiling at them. Hopefully, one day they will bear good fruit as well. Love is the main ingredient.

My own 2 peaches.
Getting watered.

Rich soil is always good too.

What do you get? Sweet, juicy and ripe fruit.

Violating the outside watering ban in GA?? Mmmmm. Two words: Rain barrels.

You're right. I'm busted. My watering days/hours are Mon, Wed, and Sat. from midnight to 10 am. and this was late afternoon.
