        Hiya Guys and Dolls

        It is that time of year and the peaches on my tree are just about ready to be plucked! You would swear i was growing dollar bills on my tree with the groves of people going absolutely ape to pick them.

        My doorbell is ringing nonstop with strangers. Just yesterday i had a man come to the door with a very bad toupee i might add and two great big grocery bags (yes not one but two) asking if he could have some peaches. Like a broken record i told him like i tell everyone that they are not ready yet and i have not even taken them myself yet!

        One of my neighbors who never even says hello or gives me the time of day speaks to me once a year........when the peaches are ripe! He comes waltzing over asking for peaches the other day when i was not home and asks my sis for peaches. She tells him they are not ready yet yada yada and he bold face lies and tells her i said it was ok to come and pick them!

        Later that night he comes outside as i am sitting on my front porch and glares at me for like 15 minutes shifting an evil eye tween me and the peach tree. Then he had the audacity to tell his son to come knocking on the door this morn and ask if he could have peaches!

        Please don't get me wrong i am not a selfish person but these are just examples of daily goings on with people who are maniacs for peaches. If i gave them out to alllllllll that asked for them i would have no peaches left! As it is there is plenty of them already missing when they come like thieves in the night, pull up in the car and steal em.

        Should i post a sign in my yard that says "Ask for Peaches and You Will be Shot Where You Stand"?

        Are peaches that amazing that it brings out the animal in them. I have people walking by that never so much looked at me before who suddenly have dollar signs errrrrr peaches in their eyes smiling and nodding their heads to say hello. But i guarantee ya when the peaches are gone them smiles will quickly turn upside down!

        Help with your thoughts because things are not exactly peachy keen right now!

        I guess seeing them on the tree all fat and juicy makes them want one (or two).  Maybe you should pick them all as soon as they are ready and sell them to all those people that want them....I bet they won't want so many then.  If they don't want them, peach jam (jelly) is nice....yum!

        Hey, can I get some peaches? I live in Oklahoma, but that's okay.  But really, I would put a sign up that says, "No, you can't have any peaches"

        Gonna pick them in the next day or two and have a whole day of baking everything and anything that has peaches in it! I had a baking peach party last year and made some great goodies i froze and had them up until Christmas. It was great. If anyone knows a great peach recipe please let me know and i will try it out.

        If the neighbors showed some respect, I would give them some peaches. But if I understood well, they aren't good neighbors at all showing up only once a year to ask for peaches. You are right, they probably steal them during the night. So, when everything sums up, I wouldn't give them anything.

        I'd put up a sign in the yard, but not with the "Ask for Peaches and You Will be Shot Where You Stand" text, that's a bit radical

        I'd write something like this: "Don't ask for peaches, we'll give some away to a few deserving neighbours"

        I just don't understand it. If I walked by someone's house, the last thing I would do would be ask if I could pick their peaches. That's just me though. It's bizarre and you'd have to see it to believe it. Lips is not exaggerating. People whisper and point and stop their cars and come to the door.

        It's like every time someone smiles in your direction you think, oh you just want some peaches lmaooooo

        I'm familiar with the situation; my father lives in a small town near Belgrade and besides peaches, he has apples, plums, apricots and some vegetables,  too. So, people ask for fruits but they steal, too. Nothing surprises me anymore.

        I think I remember a pic of you and your peach tree from last year...or was I dreaming???

        If you want to give a few peaches to family and friends that is your choice but for strangers to stop or neighbors that ignore you the rest of the year to ask or steal them from you is another.

        As soon as they are ripe...pick em and enjoy them Lips and tell those ignorant people....maybe next year or when hell freezes over!!

        Update on peach tree! I went out and picked almost the last one off the tree and tomorrow will have a peach baking party and freeze some goodies. I'll make some peach pies too and pull them out for Thanksgiving.

        The ignoramus neighbor that lied i told ya'll about pulled another fast one by sending his 8 year old son over with a sad face asking if he could have peaches. I said sure and went to pluck just ONE off the tree  . Then yesterday i saw his sweet mother who lives downstairs from him (who he treats poorly........sigh) and i asked her if she wanted peaches and gave her some for her personal enjoyment. I am sure that frosted his peaches!!!

        lol let no woman scorned come between her and her peaches. I bet you got a bunch of peaches that fell off the tree and on the ground and bees are swarming. When he knocks again tell him yeah he can have the peaches on the ground and with luck he get a stinger in his a$$.
