Yesterday I picked most of the peaches off Tree #3. I’ve been lucky that our peaches have ripened at different times and not all at once. The peaches from the first tree were ready in May, the second tree was ready in June and now the peaches from the third tree are ripe and the fourth tree will be ripe probably in a couple of weeks.
Both of us were very surprised there were so many peaches on this little tree. So far, they’re the best of our peaches but the first ones kinda got ripe when we weren’t watching and they were too ripe when we picked them. Then we were afraid the second ones were going to get too ripe and we picked them a few days before they were ready to be picked but I think we picked these at just the right time.
The first thing on the agenda when there are fresh peaches is . . a peach cobbler.
Still doing without Blue Bell but the Tillamook Old Fashioned Vanilla was a great substitute.
I made half a recipe but this is the whole recipe:
