Yes! It is time to celebrate the season of abundant produce, and particularly peaches! We are so fortunate that a local hardware store trucks in lugs each year from Western Colorado. This year's load (or lode, as I think of it) comes from Black Bear Orchards in Palisade. Yes, we got a whole lug. No, that is not too much for two people--at least not the two people at our house.
This year's poem for peach season is a haiku:
slices of sunshine
slide gentle juice down my throat,
cozy taste of home.
See last year's peach season poem here.
What flavors do you savor this season? Here, everything's peachy!
