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?
