The peaches are ripe

The peaches on the tree are getting ripe. It’s about 2-3 weeks later than last year because we had a cool spring and summer. This summer had a lot fewer 90+ degree days this year, but I think the biggest factor is that the spring bloom was at least two weeks later.

We give away a lot, eat a few, and freeze the rest.

They’re nothing like store peaches.

Baby snake

My daughter caught a snake this morning. It’s a baby gopher snake and it’s the third we’ve found in the yard over the past year. So we were at a pet store this afternoon and I asked if they had frozen mice. The store employees were horrified. Apparently it’s a vegetarian kind of pet store.

I should have asked if I could buy a baby hamster.
