We have begun to reap the bounty of the season. Our first tomatoes came a few weeks back. Today I had the first of our heirloom tomatoes. It was delicious. It was very ugly with a lot of black rough spots on the outside but he inside was meaty, bi-colored and flavorful. As you can see above I had it for lunch with some cottage cheese and chives (from the garden.)

This weekend we got a bushel of Michigan peaches from a local orchard. They were spread on our dining room table on beach towels to ripen. Last night Amanda and Shube worked like beavers to put freeze them. We had some last night and again today at lunch. Delicious! I love this time of year because of the reaping of the work that we and others have put in.

Oh, there's nothing like fresh frozen peaches...especially scooped over some vanilla ice cream in February, OR, better yet, a peach cobbler!! Good work Amanda and Shube!!

Mmm. We lost most of our tomatoes to a feisty 'coon, but have enjoyed the occasional raspberry as well as carrots, beets, and herbs. That tomato pic looks good enough to eat!
