Anyone remember that song? 6fm?
This year it was apricots I peeled and jammed a million of, but this song has been running through my head thanks to a mental jog by my friend Stephanie.
If I never see another peach, apricot or cucumber it will be too soon!!! Although, I didn't get to can peaches yet this year, and if my kids get into winter without jars of fresh summer peached lining the walls of our pantry it may not be pretty here at the Smith house.
Last year we went to a local U Pick farm after our annual Back to No School picinic. They had lots of cracks* so it was cheap and wonderful. Maybe we will try that again this year, who knows!
*Cracks are fruits that have either fallen from the branch and split open, or have split from being overly ripe. The skin looks atrocious, but the fruit inside if perfect. These cracks are just right for canning and jam making.
