What drastic measures must be taken to save some fruit! LOL Luke and I took a few minutes in the Daddykirbs Orchard to harvest the Nectarines before the birds and bugs took them all. This is a great year for Nectarines because we had a very mild Winter here. I hope you enjoy the harvest! Thank you for joining me on my journey.

I had a peach tree that we had more fun watching all the animals come by to eating the fruit. My children were 5 and 8 and we would sit by the window for hours. They had a blast. Bobcats would sit in the shadows and jump on the mice and rats. The window was tinted so they couldn't see in. Oppusums and big cats would come by (mountain lions) and sit against the window clueless we were on the other side. Most of the cats were females with cubs. My kids now are fascinated by nature. We only had one tree.

Bought some grocery store nectarines... Extremely beautiful, ripe looking. Sweet. Crunchy, like an apple. Very little flavor. Had the organic label. I'm sure they warehouse and ship well, though. Don't bruise easy and probably hold up well in the produce case.

Do you top your pear tree to keep it low? I looked online and most "experts" say topping will kill trees?

Hi Blake, l love nectarines.You are doing great with your fruit trees. The only way I could plant fruits and vegetables is to buy the seeds itself. I helped my boyfriend plant and it grew very nice. We planted avocado collard greens and cucumber.

Have you considered a tulle netting over your trees since they are fairly low it shouldn't be to hard to cover them.

Another reason I don't have chickens. We do the same with fruit that has a small imperfection. No need to throw it away. Thanks Blake. I have not had good results with my orchard. Best wishes Bob.

I know it's not fun that your chickens are eating your family's and your food but it's kind of cute that they perch and peck at the nectarines in their own little chicken world.

I have a peach tree in my yard and know what you mean about the late frosts. The last few years have had late frost that killed off the flowers and had no peaches, but this year I had peaches coming out of my ears! I had all the neighbors taking what they could, I've taken basket after basket. There are still plenty for the birds, bugs, and such.

I need to pick up the peaches that have fallen to the ground though. My tree is too close to the house to have rotting fruit there. I'll take them back to the back of the yard to compost. :-)

I wonder if you can try using garlic to repelled those beetles. They used organic garlic as a pesticide in England palace garden. Blending it in water and soak the trees with it. I thought u have problem with small birds. I was going suggest net ting the trees. Were going try it on cherries tree. That's a big harvest you got.

Consider yourself lucky! Last year the squirrels stole ALL the peaches and pears we had off of 4 trees. To taunt me they took it up into the big sycamore tree and ate them,dropping the pits around the tree. Come spring rains,50+ peach pits sprouted all around the sycamore. This was nice except i had 50 or so trees growing in the wrong place and i had to dig them up and nurse them till now. I got no fruit,but did get trees to plant. I really wanted to eat those peaches! Moral of the story-you at least got to eat some :) those nectarines you have look good!

I'm surprised you get any without some sort of barrier or net. The birds here eat any sort of fruit when they start to ripen.

WoW guys, those are beautiful awesome looking nectarines! So many so early, you must be pretty far down south here in Texas not to be affected by the Texas winters cuz here in Dallas, the fruit wouldn't be present so early if any. Your harvest looks awesome. How many nectarine trees do you have? Very nice!!! I was hoping you were gunna take a bite out of one. . .Let us know how they taste. . .sweet, juicy, tart . . If you guys make jam, or jelly or even a yummy farm fresh smoothie bring us along. . . Great looking harvest!

AHHHHhhhhhhhhhhhhh-Ha-ha-ha-ha! When you pushed on that beetle it popped, clicked and you jumped. . ha-ha-ha-ha, I jumped with you! I've never seen one of those beetles. Strange lil characters there. . . Again thank you and your family for sharing.
