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!

Oh, long-live the Yakima Valley! We went there frequently, and brought back crates of cherries and peaches. Yum. Your photo is succulent!

Hmmm...peach! That's what can be found in our home all the days in summer. We like to eat it so much.

Thanks Becky. I'm a civil engineer. I'm going to move to Portland to get my Master degree in transportation engineering specialty. I've heard Portland has a very good multimodal transportation system.

Where is Walla Walla exactly located? in Washington?

I totally agree about the peaches. We love them "raw", in pies (with a handful of blackberries thrown in), in jam, in smoothies.
