  I remember walking into my Grandma’s house, egg noodles drying on muslin towels draped on tables, the sofa, counters–and anticipating egg noodles for supper.

Five peach trees grace our orchards.  One is an Alberta, three are newly planted Charlottes, and the other is a three-in-one variety that used to be a four-in-one.  Last summer a whole branch of this peach laden tree broke right off at the graft.  So now its a three-in-one.  The peaches these trees made last summer were the sweetest, juiciest […]
