  • Peaches, blueberries are made to be together

    The peaches are bursting with flavor this year. I wish I could say the same for my blackberry bushes. I forgot to cut them back and now I have nothing to show for them. That doesn’t stop me from going to the farmer’s market or Kroger and buying some. They’ve been exceptional this season also.
