Here we are getting ready to pick. Virgil, me, Katrina, Carla, Stephen and Jill
The peaches were gorgeous.
And tasty too!
They even smelled delicious!
Lots of picking!
And discussing the finer points of the peach
We enjoyed the beauty of nature
And being together
Despite the look on her face, she really DOES love me. Honest!
Mr. Miner, the orchard proprietor, offered to unbutton a few buttons on his shirt for my picture.
He will be Mr. July in my upcoming calendar - Men of the Orchards
(**Sidenote** See how he's dressed - blue jeans, long sleeved shirt, suspenders - that could be my Daddy. I just wanted to load him up and take him home with me.)
What did we do with the bounty?
peach jam, peach butter, canned peaches, and peach juice (this photo just shows a few jars)
And, yes, I still have peaches left!
