You're a peach.

Last week Keith & I went peach picking!  So far this year we've gone strawberry picking, blueberry picking & now peach picking.  We were really hoping to be able to pick some strawberries this year, but a lot of the crop was ruined because of the unusually warm weather that we had back in March.  So, that was a bummer.  But there's always next year!  & because we weren't able to pick cherries anywhere, we decided to pick some peaches at Cherry Avenue Farms instead.  Keith also picked up some local honey, some blueberry honey & some apple butter.  The blueberry honey is delicious.  The bees pollinate blueberry orchards and it gives the honey a sweeter flavour.  Perfect for drizzling over peaches that have been roasted on the BBQ... yum!

Another item to cross off the list!  Although I hope that every summer I'll be able to pick these fruits again!  So, another item off the 2012 list!  Ha.   Yesterday on the ride home from up north we passed a cranberry bog/marsh!  That would be a ton of fun to do!  Maybe next summer... Are there any things that you're hoping to do before the end of the summer?

  3. Oh! I would love to go somewhere and pick peaches. This looks like such a lovely day. In the fall my mom and I go for walks in the forests nearby our old house and we usually come home with a bucket of something - blueberries or mushroom. It's such a joy!
