Dog Days of Summer

Latest report, it's a tie between the raccoons or other critters that like our peaches and my hubby. Despite all the frame and netting, they got into the peaches, so hubby made a trap but that didn't work so he picked the remaining peaches which were many and called it a tie until next year.

The addition of pop cans on the netting didn't stop the critters climbing up
A baited trap slowed them down some but didn't trap them or stop them
Decided they were ripe enough to pick if we wanted to eat any of them.
Some are quite green but will ripen probably all at once
Tasty addition to yogurt and cereal


  1. You've pretty well convinced me to just keep on hitting the fruit stands for my peaches... a LOT less frustration with plunking down four bucks and walking off with a bag of plump and juicy peaches.

  2. The animals like them too! Just gotta build a bigger trap?

  3. That's a good looking crop! Win some, lose some. A tie is good.
