Peaches are delicious!

We had 2 beautiful days Friday and Saturday. The peaches are picking much better and we expect to harvest a lot of Sun Hi and Loring this week, both great for putting up.

The raspberries are coming full tilt and the blackberries have really sweetened up. We are definately planning on a good Peach Festival next Sat. the 15th. The Ernie's Choice should be really nice for picking if we leave them hanging this week. I know t-storms are forecast, but it'd be nice to just see some gentle rain this week instead. Bill Short has volunteered to lend his hay wagon again so we can do hayrides up to the peach orchard. All our friends and family are setting aside their Saturday plans to help out at the grill, entertainment, ice cream making and general being helpful. Thanks to all who have volunteered!!
Sam, Hillary, Casey, Chelsea and I finished the Tshirts for the festival.
This year we designed and printed our own. WOW!! They'll be available for sale on Saturday. Plan on spending some time seeing the farm and enjoying the day. We'll start around 9:30 and end around 4:30.

Gary says the Zestar apples are almost ready to pick!! These little trees have a huge apple crop...

  1. Dad surprised us with a box of peaches. Yum!!! I do admit that containing the juice while eating is a challenge for a messy eater like me. :)
