Limping Along

I didn't take very many pictures this week.  Most of the pictures I took were ones of canned fruits and pickles and I put them on my gardening blog as a record of how the harvest is going.  
I canned peaches and bing cherries earlier in the week and a few pickles.  The beets are all into pickles and yesterday I did up 50 pounds of peaches.  Most of them went into jars but some went into bags for smoothies and sauce for cereal.  
Yesterday's job went more quickly than I expected. The peaches were huge, and the skins just slipped off.  Sometimes it isn't quite that easy. 

Big peach on the left, regular peach at the bottom.  


There was a rather gorgeous sunrise last week.  The clouds were funny, leftover from some rain in the night. 

The boys had haircuts last week. 



The boys are taking swimming lessons.  I try to get down there part of the time because Zane doesn't have anything to do while Barry and Christian have lessons.  Lorene is in with Christian for a 'mommy and me' class.  

Waiting time.

After I started this, which turns out to be a rather lame post I remember I had another more exciting post planned.

I froze peaches yesterday and evidently they weren't ripe enough. The skin would NOT come off! SO aggravating!!!

We have been devouring fresh-from-the-tree peaches and they are delicious! Love peach season. ☺๐Ÿ˜Š☺๐Ÿ˜Š
