     Along with heat, produce is also thriving.  Some plums got sunburned, some peaches ripened more quickly than needed, some vegetable plants wilted but all is good now.  We survived the week of high temperatures. 
      White and yellow peaches are the stars of the show for now.  Now is the time for peak season juicy sweet peaches.  We are also getting cling peaches for those of you who like firm sweet peaches.
     Plums should not take a back seat to peaches.  We now have 7 to 10 varieties, all juicy sweet and tasty.  Just letting you know, we are now harvesting Kelsey the green plum. The skin is green and the flesh is sweet and yellow. 
       It is August but fall is starting to show up.  We have early Gala Apples and a few Asian Pears.
      In the vegetable gardens we are harvesting slicing tomatoes, salad tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, paste tomatoes, and heirloom tomatoes. We are getting some chilies and tomatillos.  The squash and cucumbers continue to produce their share.
