An Amish fellow down the road ordered 500 bushels of peaches and sold out of them within a week. The next week he bought 250 more bushels and had only 20 bushels left by the end of the day they were delivered.
I was the lucky recipient of 1 1/2 bushels sold at $14.00 per 3/4 a bushel.
I didn't know just how great a price that was (having never bought bulk peaches before) until I talked to someone who bought a bushel for $37.00 locally LAST YEAR.
And these are some real beauties.
I haven't gotten sick of eating them yet (oh and I am canning some every now and again too), especially when made into my fabulous peaches and cream pie. It would be IMPOSSIBLE to get sick of eating that!
I hadn't blogged in a while, and after yesterday spending about 14 hours straight in the kitchen, I was due to "get off my feet" and I thought it was high time for a nap-time blog marathon. Thus, plenty of posts in one day...but now naptime is over so this is where I leave it.
Hope all is well.
