Ah, Peach Season

Today, officially, is the first day to pick your own peaches at Legend Hills Orchard west of Utica in northern Licking County. I got half a peck yesterday of some ready picked fabulous-tasting, juicy peaches.

As a kid growing up, our house had a great oddity. The previous owner had fruit trees on our little suburban lot. Together with fruit-bearing cherry, red plum, and green plum trees were several peach trees. We used to harvest so many peaches we gave away and tried to sell off more peaches than we could eat.

In my book, nothing beats fresh peaches. It's local too!

  1. I really love peaches and peach pie. We got some good peaches last week at the farmers market. Probably not as good as when you get get to pick them yourself.
