Summer is pretty fantastic if you have friends who grow their own fruit. Sure, vegetable gardens are in full swing — but we all know that it is the fruits that makes the world special. Know what I’m taking about? I mean, who here hasn’t been on the receiving end of a neighbor’s overgrown zucchini? Seems everywhere I turn people are offering up their zucchini. Some days I think if I ever see another zucchini again it will be too soon. Thankfully it doesn’t take long to come to my senses and remember that life without zucchini isn’t worth living. A good zucchini has its own way of making the world go ’round y’know.
Today, however, is about the other team: Team Fruit. It has been quite the bounty around here lately. First a huge bag of lemons arrived thanks to one of my mother-in-law’s best friends. She is quite known for her lemons. In fact she has a habit of overexposing them and then freely giving them away once it is apparent that she has too many. They are admired for their size but frankly I think they are a bit too big. On Thursday, Ms. Barrister surprised me with a bag of white peaches from her tree! Look how cute and petite they are with their small white pit!
