Movin' to the Country...Gonna Eat a lot of Peaches

Yummy. It's peach harvest season! My mom and I went to the orchard on Mt. Rock Road in Shippensburg today. Mmmmm. They had fans blowing in their little tent and the smell of fresh ripe peaches wafted to our noses. Oh. It was delightful.

The beautiful orange peaches were calling out to us, especially in their antique wooden baskets. My favorite thing about peach season would have to be a bowl of sliced peaches with a scoop of cold vanilla ice cream on top. Sigh. I am dreaming about it now.

The worst thing about peach season, however, would have to be peaches with the skin still on them. Ewwww, they are not meant to be eaten that way. Those fuzzies on my tongue?? Argh, I can't handle that.

  1. The skin on the peaches is good for you though. If you wash off the peach before you eat it, then you wouldn't have those little fuzzy things on it. A lot of the good stuff for you is in the skin of the peach
