Generally this time of year we are enjoying the treat of Colorado Peaches! We did buy good peaches at the beginning of the peach season but that was a short lived treat. We were told by the local grocery stores that they received a very limited supply of Colorado peaches this year because of weather conditions in Colorado, we tried another brand that were a dismal disappointment. Then to my surprise I discovered that peaches can actually be grown in Minnesota, probably not by just anyone, but my friends Mary and David Segar have a peach tree and harvested their first crop of peaches, Mary said they are delicious! Who would have guessed?! We are too old to try to plant a peach tree, we probably wouldn’t live long enogth to see the first harvest but some of you could try!
