Sweet juicy peaches high above 14th street!
Jean asked me to help save his plants. He had purchased the property with a large rooftop terrace. The previous owners were home everyday so there was no irrigation system other than hand watering. There was a period of time without any occupancy - and it unfortunately occurred during a heatwave.
There were two maple trees, two crepe myrtle shrubs, six hydrangeas, and a peach tree. I could see that there were about a dozen peaches on this tree with dried burnt leaves. My team set up irrigation, then gently fed the plants over a few weeks. I could see the peaches get larger. They looked beautiful!
When I met with Jean to discuss the terrace, the peaches were ripe on the tree. Jean graciously invited me to try one. The peach was so juicy and sweet - it was the best I had all summer! A delicious, fabulous fresh peach grown above the streets of 14th street in New York City! Gotta love it!
