Well to me all unions suck, but Texas doesn't have to put up with so many unions. We are a right to work state. I will quit my job before I have to deal with the unions in Chicago!

Our peach trees didn't do much this year, but the ones in the plains did, and I've stocked up each time I've been by.

Probably going to make a bourbon peach cobbler out of some of them tonight. Made a peach cake the other day that was excellent.

I knew you were pretty good at killing pigs, but I didn't you were also a happy little baker!

No need to worry about all that water down there really Rev.. LOL Maybe I can call a few union brothers up at the Goodyear plant as well as a few more along the coast. I could tell them the Rev needs some much needed rain and ask if we can whip up a storm.. You know something like a huricane to wash the place out.. I really enjoy this northland the more I think about it..LOL

I am glad your peaches are doing good on your lonely peach tree C.I.

I won't have many winter squash as the chuck did a early number on them. The berries are sweet but not so many.Typical year considering the drought we had in this part of state. The paper said this morning the farmers can get relief.
Those that eat N.Y. apples...they will be smaller this year...don't let that stop you, they will be very sweet as lack of rain.

I had something that was eating mine a few weeks ago just as they were getting peachy colored. I came out of the house one morning and there were 9 on the ground. I figured it was either a coon climbing the tree or deer knocking them down so I put a small fence around the trunk and then drove 4 stakes in a 10' box all around the tree and strung the fishing line around it at a foot and a half height. I hung a scary eyed balloon out with some flashies too. That took care of my problem.
