Adopt a peach tree in Fresno, CA next summer! We did this July and it was fabulous!

This year, a friend who lives in the central valley of California e-mailed me about being on a team to adopt a peach tree.  The team has to apply, and then when accepted each member pays for the years upkeep of the tree.  The peach picking was last Saturday and there was brunch set out such as chips and peach salsa and other things from the Masumoto recipe book. Each person on the team went home with several boxes of freshly picked, organic peaches.  My city friends have loved the peaches!  What I love is that in a small way I have supported a small farm in the central valley of California.  Included is a book by David Mas Masumoto called, Letters To The Valley, A Harvest Of Memories, which is a book to his ancestors about farming in the central valley, it is touching and a great sentimental read!
