La cosecha


This evening I chased the sparrows out of the peach tree (they sneak in under the netting then get caught in it) and harvested Elberta peaches, Thompson seedless grapes, and Santa Rosa plums. There are some peaches still left on the Elberta. I left the ones the birds have started so they can finish them. The Red Haven peaches look lovely but are hard as rocks right now.

So here is the bulk of the 2010 harvest. I can testify that they taste good.

Elbertas!

As Peach country credentials, in the town where I first preached regularly, the movie theater was the "Elberta".

Paul, your produce is gorgeous. I can almost taste them, but not quite.

The birds drive Tom crazy. If only they'd pick one or two and leave the rest alone.

Thank God for the Pauls of the world with green thumbs. Your harvest is beautiful. Those of us with purple thumbs rely on those with your talent, Paul, to keep us from starving.
