Peaches are what we wanted and Oliver Farms was the place to get them! My parents-n-law and I went yesterday to get a "mess" as we call it in the South. We have been doing this for several years now. We peel & slice the peaches, mix them with sugar & fruit fresh & freeze them. My husband loves to eat a dish of them with Ice cream & pound cake. My Mother-n-law makes peach ice cream, peach pound cake, and peach cobbler. I, however, do not like peaches. I really dont like any kind of fruit. I like CHOCOLATE!! BUT since my husband is fond of them, I go every year and suffer a days worth of peeling, sore fingers, and sticky peach guts from head to toe so that I can please my husband! The day is not all bad. There are many things I enjoy about it. I love spending time with my Parents-n-law. There is always a day full of conversation about EVERYTHING! I usually start by telling them my troubles, they advise me & always encourage me. We talk about God, our churches, the family, politics, pecan trees, the weather, you name it & we have discussed it! We laugh & cut up and even though your neck is hurting & your but is sore from the long sitting..well it makes for a good day. It is always rewarding to see the many containers full of peaches and through out the year as I use them up for various recipes I always think of our long day together and I am glad we decided to "put up a mess" of peaches.

WOW!!! Love those GEORGIA peaches. Wish I were there to pick some of them. I have been picking my gooseberries this morning. I gave them to my neighbor, because I still have jam left over from last year.
