Here are a few pictures showing the progression of the peach tree's growth this summer. This April we experienced a late deep freeze which killed all the blooms of all the neighborhood fruit trees. Last year this tree (and every other fruit tree) was loaded with fruit. When loaded with fruit the branches hang even lower.
|Dec 2013 New Trellis|
The back part near the fence supports the peach tree. I built that a couple of weeks ago. The front part, I built yesterday. I found the 2x4x 12's in the cull pile at Lowes.
Here is a sampling of what I hope to grow on the new trellis:

Green beans! In 2013, they climbed the amaranth, 2 sisters style!
Who knows I may even live on the edge and test out the structure with PUMPKINS!
