Last week....

Seth picked peaches off of our tree!! Yes, you read that right! We actually had a tree that produced peaches!! We are SO excited!! This is the first year so the peaches were pretty small, but we were able to can 5 quarts of peaches....(one jar broke during processing) Jason was very happy because I let him sit in the sink while I washed them....he thought he was pretty lucky, because he had a sink full of orange-red balls......then true happiness hit when he bit into one!! He was hooked! This boy loves peaches and messes and playing in a sink full of water!! What a fun time! We are hoping for a whole lot more peaches next year!!

ah, my mouth just got all water-y...wanting a yummy peach of my own. Pears, then peaches... my favorite fruits...so jealous. I remember eating peaches out on our porch when I was younger... but I wasn't a purist then, so they were usually swimming in a bowl full of sugar. I miss that stickiness. :) Lovin' your pictures as always.
