Tom and I headed back out to Great Country Farm yesterday for this week’s farm share pickup and fruit-picking. (By the way, hello to We Love DC readers Jonathan and Katrina, who we met on the hayride back from the orchard.)
We knew we were getting some peaches in our produce box, but in previous weeks it has only been about 4 at a time and we had to ration them carefully so we could enjoy them all week. We expected to split the 4 pound bag of pick-your-own peaches with our friend we split the share with, and additional peaches were only $2/pound, so we picked some extra.
Hah. There must have been 2-3 pounds of peaches in the box. Then our friend wasn’t feeling well and didn’t participate in the picking, and didn’t take her half of the 4 pound bag. And we had picked probably another 4 pounds. (In addition to the couple of pints of blackberries.)
People, there are now at least TEN POUNDS OF PEACHES in my dining room. What the hell am I going to do with all this? I’d better start baking now… Post your peach recipes/ideas in the comments, please!
