Peachy tragedy

By Penny Stine

This sorry peach is the one lone peach that formed on my peach tree this year. I wasn't surprised or disappointed by the single fruit because I just planted it last spring. I had been watching it and checking for ripeness. Evidently some critter had been, too, since those teeth marks are not mine!
I would be much more devastated about his sorry, half-eaten, sad-looking peach if I couldn't go to the Teller Arms farmers market on Saturday and buy a flat of peaches every Saturday morning. But since I'm well on my way toward my goal of eating my weight in peaches this summer, I can just say "bummer," and chalk it up to learning.  
Perhaps next year I'll have to buy a spy-cam to see what's stalking my peach tree.

You had a fly-by burglar. Looks like a bird. I’ve gone to netting most of our fruit trees after years of nurturing fruit along all season only to find out that birds are excellent judges of ripeness and will beat me to the fruit every time.
