The first outing of my Plum Pants With Pointed Pockets was to pick peaches! This was a great socially distanced and outdoor activity that I highly enjoyed (apparently the orchards around here are seeing record turnout for pick-your-own this year due to people looking for outdoor activities).
The orchard was lovely, full of charming vistas, and it was easy to walk to the far ends of the orchard where there were few people.
Here I am, casually picking peaches in my plum pants! Lest you fear that masks were not worn on this outing, here is the photographic evidence that I did have a mask with me. I intentionally sought out areas with no other people around so that I could remove my mask for a few photos.
In addition to the fun of hunting for the best peaches on the trees, I had a peck of peaches to bring home with me at the end of the day!
These were the most delicious, sweet peaches!
I ate them plain, I blended them down to make peach puree for cocktails, I baked a peach-thyme galette, I added them to smoothies… There was a lot of peach in my life for a few weeks!
And I’m pleased that my Plum Pants have been worn a few times since the peach outing as well!
