Peaches

Peaches, peaches, peaches. Those were the main things we talked about this weekend. Last year we did not get any peaches off of our two peach trees because of a very late freeze. This year we have 2 trees loaded with White Freestone peaches. On Friday afternoon I picked our first 2 peaches of the season and once Jared got home from work we picked an overflowing 5-gallon bucket of ripe peaches.

After eating at least a peach each, we cut up and froze a couple of gallon bags worth and are going to venture into canning a few quarts this week. I also made a fresh peach cobbler for dessert Saturday night. We still have a lot of peaches on the tree and one tree is still a couple of weeks away from being ripe and ready to pick. So, if you want some fresh peaches, come on over we've got plenty.


The kids and the 5-gallons worth of peaches piled up on the picnic table.

I wish you lived closer to enjoy some also. Mama wants some of the peaches and she keeps hoping that when they come down next week we will still have some. I have frozen quite a bit and also ventured into canning to keep some for this winter.

Hope we get to see everyone soon.
