Rachel and Henry were BUSY this morning.   The orchard went nuts this year, with peaches leading the charge (this is just a partial harvest from one of our three peach trees, planted in 2009).  I can't quite understand why it's so difficult to find organic peaches in Michigan;  these have grown so well for us with relatively little input.   We've experienced much less pest damage with these than we have with our apples.

Just growing food is a lot of work;  the actual harvest and processing probably doubles the work.  Eating well is great, but there's definitely a cost to it.  Gardens aren't just for food though...
