For our prompt of “Peaches” today, I opted to portray a bit of peach canning. It’s still called canning even though it’s usually in a jar. I guess because jarring doesn’t sound quite as nice and means something
Canning peaches is always nostalgic for me. It was a family affair, from picking , blanching to the canning. And then joy of joy a cobbler! Although the best pie ever was one mixed with slices of mango and peaches! Thanks once again for the memories with your art.
There’s nothing better than eating a warm juicey ripe peach off a tree! You’ll need to tell Phillippe you want 2 trees, a normal variety and a white peach. He no doubt he will have more than one variety chicken. 😉 Your lovely sketch brings me to a memory of my favorite aunt’s kitchen in the middle of peach season…..sticky floor and all! Day one of five is done with the plumbing. Doing any detail work is out of the question for me with all the hammering and sawing.
O-M-G Charlie, this looks so tasty! Oh, when you get that dream house you should absolutely get some chickens. We got our first rescue hens in 2009 – they are such characters, and of course the eggs are delicious! But as a group they aren’t to be messed with, as our cats soon found out, being chased down the garden path. 😛
Thanks so much, Jacob!! 😃💕Though I’m sure it helps this isn’t my beloved cobbler and therefore no ice cream is present. 😉 And your chickens sound like real badasses… so cool!! Though, yeah, I bet your cats don’t appreciate it at all! lol
Haha! Well, to be honest even peach ice cream sounds like it might be nice, or at least acceptable. 😉
Oh, they are! There was once a fox in the garden – I know because they were shouting so loud and I went and scared it off. Their run door had been forced open and they were all sitting there… completely unharmed and unfazed. It was a miracle, but I’m convinced they ganged up on it and fought it off! Total badasses! They’re in a much more secure house now so, fortunately for the fox, there won’t be a round two.
