Baby Peaches

Back in early March, Lucy was given the task to pollinate all the flowers on the peach tree within the peach house. Success!
Now for the science lesson, Pollination occurs when pollen, which is produced in the plant's male reproductive organ, or stamen, is exposed to the pistil found within the female's reproductive part. Once pollination takes place, on this occasion with the help of Lucy's paint brush, seeds begin to develop. Tiny peaches are beginning to form and will swell over the next few months to give a mouth watering crop.
