Do you have any idea just how many peaches are in a half-bushel?! Well, I didn't.
I know... silly, you say. But just so you know....I do know just how many there are now.
After I bought them:)
I am really enjoying exploring around the new area of the country that we've moved to and the Amish and Mennonite farms are so beautiful. One day I just followed the signs for *peaches* to one of those farms. I just couldn't help myself. It was late in the day and I really didn't expect them to still be selling...
...but then two boys appeared and waved me (and my mom and sister) on up the driveway. So of course I had to buy something. Turns out they just thought we were lost, but were happy to show us their produce anyway.
Boy, did my mom and sister have a laugh when I came out of the produce shed carrying a box with a half-bushel of peaches:) They knew that I had no idea by my sheepish grin. But the peaches were so pretty~and smelled so good~ I didn't care.
Except that I was in the middle of moving into our new home and my kitchen was in complete disarray. But that was okay. It took me a couple of days to get around to them, but I took a little while and peeled, sliced and bagged those peaches all for the freezer. We're going to enjoy us some yummy peach dishes all winter long!
Who's laughing now? heehee
