Summer is a Time for Peaches

After my blackberry picking experience that I talked about here, I decided to go to another "u-pick" farm for fresh summer fruit. This time, I chose to visit Red River Peach Orchard outside Gainesville, Texas, and picked a whopping 25 pounds of amazingly yummy peaches! While out in the beautiful orchard, I took this photo of riped peaches drenched in morning light. I immediately fell in love with it!

When I got home, I decided to make my very first jam ever! I made eight pints of peach jam, and found it to be a time-consuming, but fun and easy, process! Here's a photo I took of my first jars of yummy peach jam:

Not only did I make jam, but I made two cobblers, some delicious peach salsa, and I put up three huge freezer bags full of peaches into the freezer! I also ate about a million peaches! They were amazingly juicy and sweet!

Vive Summertime Fruit!

signed prints, as always, are in my Etsy shop!
