Our First Armful of Peaches




The simple things in life...

I have been noticing a lot of blog post about peaches.  All sorts of yummy recipes and canning and freezing tutorials!

We had our first harvest of peaches this year. I am surprised that we had any with the trees being so new.  We have waited 4 years for our apples to produce. It wasn't much of a harvest,  just enough for everyone to try one. We all  agreed, they were the best peaches we ever ate!

I look forward to a larger harvest when we can try out some of those recipes I have been saving and we can put some up for the winter. But I am grateful for the unexpected surprise, of having our first armful of peaches, from our small orchard.
