At the Farm

Thursday, August 9, 2012

Last weekend we went picking at a farm for blackberries and peaches. The farm was huge, and there were many other things to pick (apples, other berries, and various vegetables), but after we were done with peaches and berries in 90ºF we were exhausted. I also ended up being distracted by the beautiful animals.


We ended up picking a pint of berries and several pounds of peaches, much more than we needed. We couldn't stop. They were just so beautiful and fragrant and juicy, some were so ripe they were falling right from the trees. When we came back I was thinking about canning them, but then I made a few pies and we finished the rest by themselves within a few days.

Okay, the animals?


Death by cuteness! I have been killed by the utter cuteness of the beautiful animals!

The peach picking sounds wonderful (the heat, not so much) and I can imagine the peach pies you made from them were scrumptious.

Also, sorry I've been a bad bloggy friend this week (not commenting on your last delish burger post) -- have barely had any time to visit my dear people's blogs or update my own on account of pre-Europe planning and whatnot.

I'll endeavour to update my blog tonight...nay, I WILL! Heh heh.
