Good Peaches

Really, really good peaches this year and some spectacular red heart plums but they don't begin to make up for the dismal tomato crop. After a few more jars of peaches I'll be moving on to green tomato chutneys & piccalillies, lots and lots of chutney & piccalilly.

Sweaters in August

We had rain most of the time we were in Vermont and now more rain here at home. The Brandywines are doomed. I should have planted rice.
