Because there’s MORE TO DO outside.
More than half of those need to come off so that the others have room to ripen.
Man, that was a nasty job. It was hot. And peach leaves make me itch. And I kept finding ticks crawling on me. And after we thinned we had to rake up all the fallen peaches (they spread disease if you leave them there to rot) and dump them in the woods.
Yeah, the peaches will be worth it, eventually. It’s just a very delayed gratification.
