Eye on the Peachy Prize
Taking a closer look, I found that a few peaches dropped to the ground already -- not quite ripe yet. I gathered the ones that were in good shape, and took them home to ripen on the counter. They're slightly blemished in a few spots and smaller in size than the ones you'd find in a grocery store, but... Free organic peaches? Who's complaining? Not me.
The tree sits just steps from our garden plot, and the peaches are, quite literally, up for grabs. I feel very fortunate that the tree is there. Not only do I enjoy the peaches, but it is also fun to see other people in the community come by to do the same.
Meanwhile... my amazing, wonderful husband just cooked up this fabulous grilled (store bought) peach, drizzled with honey and a few snips of basil. Wow! I am in peach heaven right now.
And to think there are more peaches to come. Ah, summertime. Life is good!
