Hope everyone is enjoying this wonderful weather. I spent a good part of the day in the peach orchard, at least it was me and the woodpecker!!
Woodpeckers absolutely love peaches and plums and are not embarrassed to join humans in the trees. I decided to share today, while I was picking that is. When I leave the orchard I restart the Scare Eye Sprinkler to at-least keep the crows out!! I do hope they clean-up the grounds for me though.
Finished the day off making fresh batches of Peach Preserves. I love it when the pan is to the bottom, and there is still just enough for that handy piece of bread, of course with peanut butter too!! We have to keep our strength up, you know.
Since my husband is a military retiree, we observed Memorial Day at church yesterday, would rather not go to town to any of the observances, so we stayed home and enjoyed our farm life.
I hope to have the Peach Preserves up and on our store this week, they are absolutely wonderful.
And, YES!! The gourds are growing great too in the field, managing to keep the deer away, so far.
For now, The Gourd Lady of Rocky Mount, Louisiana, that is....
