    The Pull of the Peaches

    Stopping at a U-pick peaches farm on the way home from Michigan, I got into to the spirit of things and picked 28 lb. Now I have them ripening on my porch, my whole house is torn up because we had our kitchen floors re-sanded, the garden is begging for attention, and the quilting projects are piling up. But I think the peaches, so wonderfully tasty from Coloma, Michigsn, need my attention first. I'm stopping for pie plates and using Paula Dean's pie filling recipe to make four frozen fillings to pop into to crusts later. In the dead of winter we'll have a glorious taste of Michigan, where I grew up. (There was a chocolate shop next door to the peach farm. I bought a cup that says, "Nobody knows the truffles I've seen :-).

    Our peach tree is usually loaded about now but the late frost killed the blossoms. I have peach envy.

    peach pie... yum. being on low carbs, making it without the crust sounds like a good idea right now.

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    I'm on the beginning of my second week of so. beach gluten solution diet. One more week of NO fruit. Those peaches are calling me, not the crust, but oh those peaches.
    Hello from Shenandoah Valley, VA. Quilting a few years. Love the process of creating the quilt top, but don't like making the sandwich of top, batting and backing as much. We have two Labrador Retrievers, a yellow and a chocolate. Blessings to all!

    Don't like peaches so you enjoy yours. You can have mine too.

    We used to buy the best peaches in Winchester. Always tried to plan a trip there for the 3rd week of August. Can't remember what they were called. Maybe 'sky' something??

    we used to buy peaches and cherries in Ontario north of niagre falls. YUM! they were always eaten up before we hit the border. npw we get New Jersey peaches-- sugar on a pit!
    The only bad days are the ones you don't get.
