grapes in peachYou know its August when investigating whether or not the peaches are ripe (some are!) you find grapes growing in the peach tree. Who knew the grape had made it this far in the wild hedgerow that shields the dogyard from the road. A ladder will be in order, both for the peaches this week and then for the grapes in September. Perhaps these grapes at the top of the tree will ripen sooner than the rest tend to as they are shaded by the jungle of vegetation in which they ramble.

tomatoes and okra Peaches were for dessert last night, and tomatoes and okra for the main course. This was my first one of the Goldie tomatoes. Very mild and non-acidic, and HUGE. The Cherokee Purple was quite fine as well.
