    man that is awfully nice of ya' johnf... always there to help a person in need.

    ps.. it looks like this will be a very good year for wild grapes. I don't think I will likely use ALL of them just for jelley. hummm honey flavored grape wine, how does that sound?

    By the way we now have tree ripened peaches here in the grocery stores. They have little stickers on them that say so.

    I checked them out and began to wonder just by what authority they could make the claim of tree ripened? I mean if they were at least ripe in the store I would be pressed to argue but these peaches weren't even ripe yet!

    Maybe I'll move to Texas...

    Around here if you want tree/vine ripened produce you'd better get it at a roadside produce stand.
    In the groceries the hard green fuzzy things are peaches, the smooth ones are either nectarines or plums---it doesn't really matter, the taste is very similar. The difference between zucchinis and bananas is a little more subtle but, for customer convenience, they're kept on separate display tables with signs indicating the grocer's best guess at identity.

    >>>could a person possible eat tooooo many peaches?<<<
    The answer to that question is YES. As a teen in the Sacramento Valley an easy way to make a little spending cash over the summer is to pick fruit, which many of us did for a day or two here and there. One time we picked peaches which were the perfect ripeness and as peaches are one of my favorites I ate WAY too many, one of the perks of the job. It took about 2 years before peaches resumed their spot on my preference list.
