Peach Buds

Photo taken April 6th.  The buds are getting bigger.  The willows are brighter yellow.  Last year on April 3rd the spring peepers were peeping.  Not a peep from them yet this year.

Not a peep from them yet this year.  For Easter Dinner we had Penny Tree  Farm Fresh Pork Roast smothered in Penny Tree Farm Peach Preserves.  I have a few more jars left of the preserves.  

One of Three

One of three ripening peaches in a two year old tree. Documented in case someone eats it before I do. Losing young, green currants and blueberries to the birds makes me wary. Keeping milk, meat, and eggs on the table is much easier than growing fruits and vegetables. I have come to view them as luxury items. Weeds, birds, rabbits, bugs, deer, water-restrictions.  Daily challenges, creating deep appreciation, appreciation for the easy health and well-being in a glass of milk or a soft-boiled egg, appreciation for the hard work in a homegrown blackberry or dish of broccoli.
