I am three for three picking good mangoes from the super market. Yay!

But those peaches were a cheat. They smell like peaches, but they are crunchy and sour.

It's my firm belief that THIS is why we don't eat enough fresh fruit: If all you really know is super market fruit, then you are used to fruit being tasteless and sour and why eat that?

I think last year I suggested you buy your peaches only from the fruit and vegetable stand in front of Sear's (or during the short time they have them at the downtown Farmer's Market). I stand by that recommendation.

I did try those. :( They weren't much better, actually. Maybe my timing was just bad, or something.

Really? Wow. I've never gotten bad peaches from them. Huh.

I got a couple nice ones right before ConQuest, so I know they're out there.

How I long for blackberries and sandhill plums growing everywhere. Well, sandhill plums are best made into jam. But still--to just pick them and make it.
