Millions of peaches
This morning Allisha called with the fabulous idea of picking peaches. So I loaded my whiny kids in the car with a promise that it would be faster than picking berries due to the fact that peaches are at least ten times the size of raspberries. They weren't really buying it but they calmed down a bit. We arrived at the farm to see that everybody had the idea to pick peaches today. There was quite a crowd of VOP's( see former post- And the winner is... ). We walked out to the orchard and recieved our 1 minute "this is what a ripe peach looks like" lesson, and then started picking. It went by so fast that my kids didn't even have time to complain. I think they actually had fun. Especially when they discovered that peaches explode when they hit the ground with great force! We brought home a beautiful 25lbs of peaches. mmmmmm! When we left Mason felt it neccessary to let me know that " next time I'm thinking berries... I should be thinking peaches! I'll definately be thinking peaches as I peel and slice them this afternoon. Thanks for calling Alisha. It was fun!
