Its a long holiday weekend, Labor Day. Down in the town families are celebrating. Here on the farm, no worker related interruptions, peace at last.
My young peach trees are starting to really produce. It is always a competition with the birds, mainly the blue grey tanagers, or the workers. Everyone loves the tasty little mountain peaches. They are the size of apricots with pale flesh like a miniature white peach. Lovely balance of sweetness and acidity.
I missed out on the first lot thinking I would let them fully ripen on the trees, so decided to try I picking less ripe. They come off the tree easily but have a little green as well as pink blush on the skin. Testing out a technique to ripen inside between linen cloths.
Should have many more if the sun and rains cooperate over the next couple of weeks.
