Just Peachy

Strawberries, blueberries and lots and lots of peaches! We've had a busy summer. Aidan and Adelaide helped me pick lots of strawberries early this summer. Addie ate most of hers before we left the field. By the time we were finished, I had two very muddy kids and some delicious berries to eat, share and make into jam.

A few weeks ago, my parents came for a visit. We went to the wonderful Dexter Blueberry farm where we picked forty pounds of blueberries! We ate as many as we could. The leftovers we froze and made into jam. We also discovered a delicious new blueberry butter recipe.

Our last major harvest came from our very own little $14 peach trees. The first year, we got one peach, the second year we got two. This year we picked about two and a half bushels between the two trees. Not bad for a $28 investment! We made peach pies and peach popsicles and we gave lots and lots of peaches to friends. I wonder how many we'll have next year???
