The beginning of July through mid August is prime peach season here in Central Missouri. In recent years, I've driven nearly 2 hours to pick my own peaches right from the orchard. Now, we have a couple of older gentlemen in our community who do the driving and bring them right to Main Street! So, I buy from them and save my gas money! They're not as big as "my" orchard peaches were, but they're just as delicious.
This is just the beginning of this year's canning season. My green beans are days away, my tomato plants are full of green tomatoes and the corn is close to tassle. With my "luck", it'll all come ripe and ready the same week! But, that's ok........it's all going to taste so good this winter and beyond.
