Peaches come from a can, they were put there by a man

And in this case, they were put there by this man.

Yesterday became Peaches Day at our house. I planted a peach tree in my side yard about five years ago. This year is the first year that I have actually stored any of the fruit. Up until now, I’ve been pretty much able to just eat all of the peaches. But as much as I love fresh peaches, I can’t eat this many.

So we froze somewhere around 15-20 peaches and canned 17 quarts of peaches. I should have weighed them, but I always forget that until it’s too late…

They’re kinda purty.

I should mention that it was a whole-family activity. Even Alaric helped a tiny bit. The girls got into it, though, and did a huge amount of the work, picking, peeling and slicing away like little machines. It was fun.

I am glad we did it. They look so beautiful.
