No ... seriously, it really was! This past Sunday, Bruce and I went to a little wingding for a good friend of ours who was having one of those Big birthdays!
This guy has been crazy about peaches since he was just a little kid. In fact he just completed a cholesterol lowering diet where he ate oatmeal with peaches on top for six months. SIX months!!!
So his wife figured she'd whip him up a peachy birthday bash out in the country at a Pick-Your-Own Peach Farm. It was a wonderful day, we all relaxed after she put us to work picking our own juicy party favors ... a basket of the freshest, most aromatic peaches ever!

Next she served us up ice cold bottles of something called Lambic Belgian Peche, which translates into a pretty darn good peach beer. We had a nice meal and finished everything off with an amazing cheesecake. Yes, of course it was peach!
After that we took a tour around the place. Only one couple had been to a peach orchard before. They grew up in the South. The rest of us were all transplants.
So assuming you've probably never been to a Peach Party, come along for a quick tour of your own . . .
|The original peach stand is right off the road. Reminded me of Route 66 back in the day.|
|Our own basket wasn't quite so full, but looked just as delicious!|
|These were picked pretty clean before we arrived. Never knew peach trees were so low & bushy|
|Mother Nature's perfect peach ... almost looks artificial!|

The Farm also lets you pick your own blueberries and blackberries.
All I want to know is why somebody would put pepper on their Oatmeal and peaches???
