Most places here in NH got hit with some killing frosts at inopportune times and didn’t have a crop at all. A few places had a partial crop which we took advantage of a couple of times. There is nothing like eating a fresh peach. :-)

I hope these were as tasty as they are beautiful! The peaches that are sent to Alaska are tasteless, mealy, and not juicy. I used to buy one each year to see if they had improved (so I could buy more) and finally gave up. I wondered if all peaches had come to that sad end.
Not all—a couple of weeks a year, the local ones can still be wonderful. The problem comes when people want peaches to be available all year, so they are picked unripe and shipped long distances…
