Before our days got jam filled with all the repairs and cleaning at our sticks and bricks house we took a trip to Walters Peach Farm in Ellisville, MS. Our friend Elizabeth’s mom, Pat, owns it and we enjoyed our visit with her a lot.
Pat sold out of most everything before we ever arrived and turned down probably a dozen people who drove up while we were there. This is one of the lucky folks who actually got some of these delicious peaches.
Pat saved a bunch of peaches, nectarines and plums for us though and we felt very special! We brought home four boxes of peaches, nectarines and plums some of which didn’t make it all the way home before being eaten.
She let us take her jeep for a ride around the fruit tree farm which was really cool. Lots of tree limbs were sagging to the ground under the weight of tons of ripe fruit. It was amazing to see all that.
This picture below is Pat picking some special green plums for us. Very unusual when they are green and taste great with salt on them! They did eventually turn purple and were sweet then!
I don’t know how much longer they will be selling their fruit but if you’re planning a trip to anywhere around Hattiesburg, MS or just want a nice place to go to get delicious fruit check them out.
Their Facebook page is where Pat tells what’s getting ripe and updated fruit information. It can be found at: https://www.facebook.com/WaltersPeaches
Madisyn found out she loves all these fruits!
Since they closed the Hammond Krystal Burger we’ve been so deprived. When we found a Krystal Burger after visiting the farm we got a bunch and enjoyed them on the way home. As adults we always try to do things the right way but every now and then it’s fun to just be a child so Roy and I tossed each of our Krystal boxes on the floor after eating the burger! It doesn’t take much to make us happy!
Here’s a picture we took at home preparing them for freezing. I’ve never put peaches up so this was a first for me.
I plan to share our two week tale of getting the house ready to go on the market so that will come next. Today is the day the photographer comes at 2:30 pm to take the pictures for the internet and I hope the line forms quickly with interesting families wanting to buy our house!
