Peach Picking Time!

The annual Peach Picking party was held on Sunday, July 30 from 4-6pm.

A Farming Concrete weigh station was available to record the harvest. The peaches we collect should contribute mightily toward our federal grant weight goal!

The July 30 peach picking party totaled 25 pounds. A second harvest date was planned for August 14, 4-6pm. Unfortunately, unknown persons assumed to be renovation workers from 12 West 104th Street were seen cutting down branches overhanging the property line. Sadly much of our harvest was stolen and the careless, chopping meant that some branches required repairs. The Pruning committee repaired the damaged limbs, but our second harvest was cancelled. Please, please if you see anyone disrespecting our garden in any way, contact a Steering Committee member immediately.
