Monday afternoon we headed to Moffatt & Moffatt in Brentwood to pick some peaches.
Sam heard we were going to a farm and decided cowboy attire was in order:
At our first stop, Maddie & Daddy got right to work. Cowboy had to poke around a bit.
And rest in the shade. It was 92 degrees and I think the leather chaps were making him a little hot...
Long-legged Maddie had no problem reaching the peaces and nectarines:
There was plenty of fruit to be found:
Sam found ladders and then he was all about the peach picking!
Ladders make the job SUPER FUN!
We may have done some sampling...
More ladder shots:
Maddie picked a little less than twenty pounds of peaches & nectarines all by herself!
Sam just had to check out the farm equipment. He is his Papa's boy!
We highly recommend Moffatt & Moffatt. The sweetest old lady talked and talked to us about her kids and grandkids while she made Evan smile. And at $1/pound, how can you go wrong??
With our load, I froze two bags of sliced, peeled peaches for smoothies, etc. I made two quarts of peach-infused vodka. I made peach ice cream. AND we gave lots away. The final fruit is in our basket on the counter, rapidly disappearing.
