We have a red Haven peach dwarf peach tree. It is really not growing as tall as advertised. If that is the case and we plant a standard size can we count on it not getting as tall as advertised? What are the best peach trees for Utah. I know our zone Starks have a few trees that are very hardy but they really don't brag about the taste and quality of the peach. Do you have any suggestions? Thanks

There may be many different factors affecting the height of your tree, such as your particular environment, the soil, the sun exposure the tree is getting, or the individual genetics of that particular tree. Even though your particular tree is not the advertized height you should not count on every tree, especially standard sized trees from not reaching their full height. When choosing tree varieties and planting locations it is always best to plan on the tree reaching the full height listed.

- Last year when I was about to harvest my corn from my yard I found that something got to about half of it before I did. I don't think it was insect because of the nature of the damage; I suspect birds. On the ears in question the husks were literally shredded and each kernel picked out. I know there are blue jays nesting in the area but this was the first time any thing like that happened. I don't think it was a mammal since the stalks were intact and not collapsed from the weight of what got at the ears that were devoured. Do you what causd this to happen? Is there something I can do to prevent that from happening this year? Thanks
