Lots of Peaches and Plums

We have lots of peaches at the fruit stand now.  The early peach varieties have finished and now we're into the more flavorful mid-summer varieties, like Red Haven, Flavorcrest, Regina and June Pride. Sweet and mild white peaches are being picked now, too.  White peaches varieties now in the fruit stand are Sugar Lady, Nectar, White Lady, and white UFO "donut" peaches. 

This is also the time of year we have many varieties of plums.  We have red-fleshed and sweet frontier and Satsuma, fragrant Santa Rosa, and juicy Black Amber plums.  The last Blenheim apricots have been picked.  Zucchini, summer squash, cucumbers, basil and other herbs are being harvested from the gardens.  We also have local free-range eggs and local honey from bees at our orchard at the fruit stand.
