It is a pleasure to enter an Ashland peach orchard, well kept, ready for picking; go
with the pickers to the trees, watch the packers at their tables, and follow the fruit
to the shipping station. It is a greater pleasure to pick the peach, just ripe, and let
it make the shortest journey to its destined end— the consumer. In the vicinity of
Ashland the most of the orchards are in the low hills rather than in the “first floor"
lands. The soil is granitic, supplying the right kind of nutrition which, together with

“Do you want me to pick you up tomorrow?” she asked. Maurelle opened the
door and jumped out into the rain. “No, thanks!” she shouted over the wind and
water. “I'm all set!” With Ella Mae's towel draped over her head and shoulders, the
slim, dark-haired young woman dashed over the saturated ground, up a pair of
rotted wooden stairs, and into the mobile home. Ella Mae put the Jeep into
reverse and prayed that she'd make it back to Partridge Hill alive. “I can just see

He was told he could pick something to eat. He foolishly told him to pick as much
as he wanted. Michael failed to tell him as long as he ate it. He decided not to
pick any for himself, just in case Billy was unable to finish. Billy was an impulsive
young man; Michael would have to be more selective in the way he
communicated with him. He was not sure he would listen anyway; he seemed to
do what he wanted. He offered some minor satisfaction when he bit into a peach

each edible will ensure you enjoy your harvest at its peak. The timing depends
on what you're ...

When I was five years old, I loved to pick fresh peaches in my aunt Malama's yard
in Naoussa, Greece. The peaches were so sweet andjuicy that when I took one
bite, the juice would run all the way down my arm. I remember thinking those
peaches were massive—the size of watermelons! When you are five, everything
seems gigantic. However, the one thing that isn't exaggerated is just how
delicious Malama's homemade peach preserves truly are. She has graciously
