#1 Son has a summer job picking peaches and corn at a local farm on the weekends. It's hard work and he's realized the benefits of good grades and a college education. Mr. Bug goes up to the farm and volunteers his time while #1 Son is there. I try to get up there and volunteer for an hour or so with LLB. She and I only pick peaches. The corn picking is hot hard work and we don't have the hand strength anyway. (Phew!!!)
Yesterday was no exception. We were up there picking peaches - it was a gorgeous day and you could see forever - the view up there is spectacular! The peaches are to die for! They are as big as your hand and wonderfully sweet and juicy. They have 4 different varieties - all wonderful! You can go up there and pick your own if you are looking for a day trip to No. VA. They have vegetables and flowers you can pick as well. It's just a terrific place!! (Those of you who live close and want to visit, email me and I'll send you directions!)
Anyway, Mr. Bug picked a giant peach!
It must weigh a pound! It is a perfect peach... It is simply gorgeous!
When is he going to eat it? Probably today - for a snack. I'll be sad to see it go, but I'd rather see it get eaten than watch it rot.
