Peachy….

Today, as we were coming home from our GWRRA Chapter E meeting in Simpsonville- we stopped off at a local produce stand in Greer, and picked up some peaches.

There was one time in grade school, we made ice cream as part of a class project. But aside from that I don’t ever recall having homemade ice cream. Since I’ve moved to South Carolina- our good friend Linda has made it a half a dozen times or so for us- but this is the first time Jan and I have made any. And I am proud to say … It sure is good….

Yesterday Jan and I went for a ride on the trike to Tryon, NC. It was such a beautiful day- cool, not too hot- so we thought it would be a good day to go eat at one of our favorite little pizza places….

While we were there we went for a drive around Lake Lanier. It’s deceivingly large, and beautiful!

produce057On our way home, we stopped off at a little produce stand on the side of Highway 25. We picked up some awesome peaches and necterines! I love the long growing season here in South Carolina. The other day we had fresh local sweet corn- I haven’t had corn that good since my days back in Nebraska!
