Thanks Zack and @SpokanePeach . It really has been a long road and I think I’ve been a slow learner in addition to having lots of not-my-fault stuff happen. But I feel like I’ve finally (sort of) got peach growing figured out. I had lots of trial and errors with things like insects, brown rot, under thinning, pruning issues, and more. But I did get some really big, nice peaches this year that look really nice, and it feels good.
So hang in there. Hopefully you’re learning curve will be much better than mine and you’ll have a nice harvest just as soon as your trees will allow. Over all else my tip is to spray early and often! It’s soooo easy to put it off and procrastinate, but just a few days too long can ruin all or almost all your fruit.I sprayed every 7-10 days. That is a lot more than it sounds. Every time I turned around it was time to spray again. But for a harvest like this it was worth it. Good luck!
