Question about the peaches

Paula asked where I got those peaches.

I must tell you that the average peach from the grocery store, has the texture of a raw turnip and very little, if any, peach flavour. (maybe I've dramatized a little)
The last time we had peaches this good was over 10 years ago. At that time I bought a bushel (55lbs) and froze them, just like I did last week.
We had a very wet and cool summer and that type of weather makes very good peaches.
I think that the entire Midwest (of the U.S.) has had a bumper crop of very good peaches. We are praying for the apples and pears to do the same. I will let you know.

Tonight I found that our blogger friend and homekeeper extraordinaire--Jewels, of Eyes of Wonder--is back on line. I am delighted. Jewels has inspired hundreds of women (no exaggeration here) to be better Moms, and better housekeepers/homemakers.

Made a couple of lunch bags today, Lord willing I will post tutorial pictures tomorrow.

I'll leave you with this:

I love peaches and usually the peaches that I get at the store are pretty bland.
