We were going to take the tour at Clark Orchards. They have a cart pulled by two gorgeous gray mules. (Rides are offered each Saturday at 9 AM and 10 AM)
We were a few minutes late, though, so we will have try again in a couple of weeks. (Next weekend I will be speaking at the Scribblers Retreat Writers Conference.)
The peaches are rosy and ripe in the orchards. They are ready for the renowned Palisade Peach Festival next weekend.
We are not waiting. We will enjoy their unique tangy juiciness for dessert tonight. YUM!
By the way, if you visit Palisade and pick up a flat of peaches, you might want to try this delicious recipe for peach sorbet, this one for a super peach smoothie, or this one for a prize-winning peach pie recipe.
