Peachy Keen

Hi from my parents’ house! We’ve had a relaxing but busy weekend so far.

Bailey always loves a good trip to visit “grandma and grandpa”.

I love the area behind their home. There’s always so much growing.

My mom took me on a tour of their garden to show me updates from the last time I saw it.

After a simple breakfast of bacan and egg sammies on WW rolls, we headed out for some more home-grown food adventures.

First up – the farmer’s market.

They had quite the assortment of dried beans, most of which I believe are local.

Mom and dad did the shopping and I just wandered around scoping out stuff.

Sis bought boiled peanuts for us to snack on as we headed out to our next destination – the peach farm!

My parent’s found a place that grew Red Haven peaches.

The farm was pretty busy with people picking their own fresh peaches.

The weather was perfect for being outdoors – warm but not too hot and with a slightly cool breeze. It felt like heaven outside.

Unlike last year’s blueberry picking adventure, it took us no time to fill up a basket with farm-fresh peaches.

And then we headed off the farm for lunch.

Not before checking out at the peach stand of course.

Have you been to a local farm this year? What did you get?
