This post is a little off topic, but I thought folks might be interested in seeing my budding work on baby peach trees. The root stocks were planted in early spring, are now roughly 24+" in height and planted about 3" apart. I'm still a little slow and the work is backbreaking for this 64 year old, but my take % improved dramatically last year as I gained experience. Budded variety is 'Redhaven.'

Those are impressive, Stephen. Have you thought about how many acres worth, and how many bushels ultimately, those are good for? That should make you feel better about your pace, I would imagine. (My back hurts just thinking about it.)

We had a late freeze here, perfectly timed to nail my peach tree blossoms, just opening. No fruit this year.
