Peach update

It is strange that the peaches in supermarkets have been so spectacularly lousy this year. Literally cannot count the people who have remarked on this to me.

Had occasion to head on a day trip to Champaign on Tuesday thereby losing any chance at the Ed's Potsticker outing. But the offset was okay. Stopped at 2 farm stands, one in Champaign, one in Onarga. Bought peaches at both. All excellent, and I have been carefully sharing my bonanza. Do not recall where the Champaign peaches came from, but the Onarga peaches were from Cobden County, Ill. Also wonderful melons, excellent beans, and blissful sweet corn from Onarga. Tomatoes not quite there.

Hit the farmers market this weekend, there should be peaches.
