[NAFEX] Over-anxious peach pits

Thanks John,

I planted some peach pits in fall 2006 or spring 2007 (can't remember which)
and they never came up, although they weren't Siberian.  I know the
squirrels got some, maybe all of them.  Either way, I plan to try again.  If
it works in MO, it should work across the border.
