Late Summer Treat
Every Labor Day Weekend my husband and I travel to the Yakima Valley to can peaches and pears with his grandmother. There are plenty of orchards here in the WW Valley, as well, and I just love seeing fresh, ready-to-eat fruit on the trees. It makes my mouth water, especially since peaches are some of my favourite fruit! This tree is a lone tree in a resident's yard in the outskirts of Walla Walla, and is not part of an orchard. I was privileged enough to be allowed to pick a few off this tree, and let me tell you: That fruit was amazing! Some of the best peaches I've ever eaten. If you're ever in this area, I recommend stopping by some fruit stands!
