People can't stop talking about this year's peach crop. We'll enjoy it while we can because it's not every year that the peaches come in this strongly. Growers talk about the bounty of this year's harvest and one new grower will talk about why she's getting into the family business of peach growing when it is a gamble every year on what the crop will look like.

Guests:

  • Jamey Vogel, Hill Country Fruit Council
  • Katelyn Duecker, new grower
  • Bob Rose, meteorologist for the Lower Colorado River Authority
  • Rick Priess, grower in Stonewall, TX
