KT and I went by the plant nursery last week to finally pick out our family tree. Unfortunately, they didn’t have any dwarf variety of the crepe myrtles. Actually, the only dwarf trees they had were peach trees.
Our plans for the backyard include growing a variety of citrus fruit trees. I wasn’t planning on growing peaches because I was afraid it would attract insects. But what the heck, we bought a peach tree.
I asked the guy who helped us at the nursery how I should care for the tree. I told him I have a hard time keeping plants alive. He told me, “this is a tree so it’ll be really hard to kill.” We’ll see.
