When I went peach picking last summer, I made two kinds of peach pie mix to put in my freezer: there was just so much fruit! There are many peach orchards in Oregon. This last summer was so hot we were only going to go on the condition that we got up early. If we needed more sleep, then we would just have to miss it.
From here, there are some summer updates that I am behind on. I’m happy to announce that I am officially settling into fall and that means more writing!
Let’s start with a fun July moment from this year.
As per usual, I took advantage of the seasonal summer fruit by picking, cooking and preserving. I went to the PSU Farmer’s market around July 4th and nabbed some pie cherries for a good bargain.
Since it has been summertime in the Pacific Northwest, that means it is berry season and I have been preserving up a storm.
And of course, my F3 is there to give me great ingredient suggestions.
