you're a peach

I planted 2 patio peaches this year.  They are about 2 feet tall and look kind of like Dr Seuss trees in the Lorax, but they should bush out and be quite pretty in a few years. 
They weren't supposed to be of fruiting age so I didn't pay much attention to them, just made sure they were well watered and gave them some compost every now and again.  But today I was clearing some leaves around them and there it was, one ripe peach!  
I have no idea why it ripened so late, but Steven and I split it and it was very tasty!  
Now I really can't wait until spring.
