Veteran Peaches

It's time to get your canning supplies ready!  
The Veteran Peaches are ripe and ready to be picked at 
Sauvie Island Farms.
The trees are full of beautiful, sweet fruit.  This variety is so easy to work with, the skins slip off and the peach comes easily off the pit.  They are excellent for freezing and canning.  The flavor is sweet and delicious this year!  We will begin picking the Veterans on Thursday, August 6.  We usually pick this variety for 10 days, so don't wait.  It's time to store up some yummy peaches for the winter months!  Pick your own Chester blackberries, blueberries, yellow raspberries, sweet corn, peppers, cabbage, kale, zucchini, broccoli, eggplant, pickling cukes, dill, flowers & herbs are also available at the farm!

This was my first year canning by myself without my mentor. These peaches were so easy to peel, cut, and can. 4 of us novice canners did 194 lbs. in about 8 hours with 4 kids running underfoot. Thanks so much!
