This has never happened before! Most summers, my Carroll Gardens neighbor gives up on her peach tree and its fruits at the beginning of August. She mostly blames the backyard squirrels, which shamelessly make a game out of biting the unripened fruit and then dropping it to the ground below.
But something happened this year. Her two fruit trees are laden with the most beautiful peaches, sun-ripened to a beautiful yellow-red.
Not a bad harvest for a Brooklyn bag yard, I say!
What is growing in your garden, dear reader?
