Eating Over the Sink Season has Begun
But Mama I Want One: this little hand snuck into the picture.
These are Paul's Pride white peaches. They're the first to come on the scene, though admittedly "the scene" usually starts a couple of weeks from now. We've had a lot of hot, dry weather, so the plants and trees are stressed. I thought this worked to my advantage when I canned some strawberry jam a couple of weeks ago: the berries were small and VERY fruity, making some beautiful ruby-colored stuff. And I guess I am not complaining overmuch that Peach Season has begun in earnest. These white ones are great to can, too. Better get the pots out...
