Peach Pickin'

A while ago, we had a wedding-free Saturday, so drove to Brentwood, about 25 miles from where we lived in Martinez. Brentwood is the like Orchard-ing region in the Bay area and there are TONS of farms with orchards. We were able to pick tomatoes, peaches and nectarines. They also had plums and cherries a few weeks before and vegetables all through the winter and summer. We had a great time and the peaches and nectarines were very inexpensive. The guy there told us to make sure to try lots of peaches, he said, one tree could have great fruit and the one next to it might not taste the same. I think between the 3 of us, we ate more peaches than we took home!

...What do you mean "I've had too many peaches!" ??

What he can do to a bushel of peaches is a beautiful thing!

I would trade peach picking for apple picking. Matt, the lattice work on your pie is amazing. If Oakland isn't too hip for a country fair you should consider entering that in the pie contest. We're looking forward to more photos of the new digs and of Joey in motion!
