Mid July is when the first of our Orchard fruits begin to mature, and in particular the Peaches.
What nicer fruit is there to pluck from a tree on a warm summer's day, than a ripe juicy Peach.
The tree above is Boo Boo's birthday tree; planted on the very day he was born. It is the best of our Peach trees, and on a good year (such as this) will provide a huge amount of perfect fruits.
The best, of course, is to eat them whilst passing by; grab one, take a huge bite, and allow the juice to trickle down one's chin. What better way is there to enjoy them.
We never do anything else with them other than to eat them as they come. I've looked online at 'things to do with peaches', but nothing really takes my fancy.
Our only problem is trying to keep the wretched birds off them; they seem to enjoy them as much as we do!
