The other day Aspen and I joined our friends Danielle and Olivia for a romp in the peach trees. We rode out into the countryside and picked our way to paradise. Boy do I have it bad for fall!
It was a beautiful, cool morning, with a great breeze. When I got home all I wanted to do was go to another farm and pick more fruit so I could go home and bake all day.
Danielle's from Virginia, so of course on the way home all we could do was talk about East Coast pumpkin patches, Halloween, and on and on. Oh, and the apple cider. And the baked goods at the farms, which they don't have as much out here.
Okay, enough about Boston falls. It was beautiful where we were the other day! Green, rolling hills, and farms every which way. And apple picking season just around the corner.....
It was so fun having the girls there to play together. On the way home they just sang and laughed and joked around, like a couple of schoolgirls. So cute.
All right, so now I've got a bunch of peaches ripening on my counter....so what next? Hopefully I'm going to be trying my hand at canning. It's a little intimidating for me to think about, but come on; I can't let all these peaches go to waste!
