Had a hard freeze recently, after my tree already started budding some fruit. Most of my peaches died but a few survived, but now I have some green stuff on them. are these peaches still okay? Or should I just pluck them and hope for a new crop to come in?

A hard freeze will kill the young fruit, those buds will drop off naturally...it's too late for a crop this year.

They don't look ok to me.

If you wrap the old style Christmas tree lights in your fruit trees and turn those on any time there is a freeze, you can usually save your blossoms or fruit. They have to be the old incandescent lights that produce heat. LEDs won't work.
