Farewell to the Peach Tree

The peach tree, post-topple, on July 3.

After nearly 20 years in the Summit Street Community Garden, the peach tree was felled by the July 2 thunderstorm.

As another storm threatened to bear down upon the garden the following day, some of the community gardeners cut the tree into smaller pieces and put them by the Summit Street gate, awaiting pickup from the parks department.

Peaches! 
Throughout the years, the tree has produced some tasty peaches, which were offered to gardeners and visitors. Farewell, peach tree.
