Peach tree question. For the past 2 years we have, at the last moment, lost our peaches (every single one) to thieving squirrels. Do you have this problem? I don't know what to do.


Melissa -- This is only the second year we've had peaches on our tree, so I'm not ruling anything out yet. We didn't have the problem last year, but this year critters are absolutely devouring our garden, so who knows. I think I would wrap the tree in bird netting, if at all possible. I would think it would at least slow down the squirrels' thieving, if it didn't stop it entirely. The bird netting works for other applications -- berry bushes, protecting sprouting corn from crows, etc. -- so I would give it a shot.

(I'm assuming, of course, that your tree is not really big! But it seems that I remember even old fashioned peach trees being somewhat smallish trees.)
