Sore limb

Mary Ann Vestal, who lives at 2040 Coral Lane in Fairfield, went on a vacation to Maine in August. Little did she know, the peach tree in her yard was producing so much fruit the branches were in danger of breaking off. Fortunately for her and the peach tree, her neighbors Jonathan and Kathleen Worcester haulted the branches’ steady decline by placing crutches underneath them. Vestal said this year has been a banner year for fruit and that many people have faced the problem of drooping limbs, but she hasn’t seen anyone solve it quite like her neighbors did.
