This time of year is in full swing for preserving all of the wonderful food available locally. There are green beans, corn, tomatoes, pears, apples and peppers. I have been busy getting as much done as possible between work and the various kids activities we have going on.
Nothing says summer quite like a ripe peach. When I close my eyes and think back to my childhood, I can totally feel the sun on my shoulders, see the shimmering water of our above ground pool, smell the freshly mown grass, hear the birds chirping, and taste that delicious peach.
Peach season is upon us. I got to pick New Haven peaches last week. They are so tasty when you can pick them and eat them as they ripen.
