One of my favorite summer treats is going "peaching", aka picking peaches. There is a beautiful peach (and apple, and Asian pear) orchard in Willcox (Apple Annie's), and I am happy to drive 30 miles for the privilege of picking ripe peaches right off the tree.

The orchard opened yesterday, but I was too busy to be the first customer of the year (as I have been the last 2 years) so Barbara and I ventured out this morning. First we hit Apple Annie's Farm for some sweet corn, then on to the orchard.

Red Havens are the first peaches to ripen there and of course we had a taste. I cannot get enough of the beauty of peaches hanging on the tree. And love that juice running off my chin. Boy, I am going to OD over the next couple of weeks!
