In praise of .....

.... Georgia peaches.

One of the best aspects of  life in Florida is that (at this time of year) our markets have an abundance of Georgia peaches.

I've been buying them at Sarasota's  Mennonite owned "Yoder's Market" on Bahia Vista Street.

These peaches are firm-fleshed, but not hard.

They peel away from the stone with the greatest of ease.

They are sweet and juicy.

I've had nothing but a peach for my breakfast these past five days.

This too shall pass, but for now I am glad that Florida is so near to Georgia --  "The Peach State"
