Peaches continue to add beauty to the summer. The quality and flavor is still very good to excellent. We have white peaches as well. Figs are coming in well right now but the celeste variety will peak real soon. There will be other figs to follow but not in volume. Our young trees are growing and if harsh winter weather does not interfere they should significantly contribute next year.    Savor the tomatoes, especially the heirlooms. Take a closer look at the tomatoes and check out the little grapes that pack a full flavor. Juliet and Jasper are both small little tomatoes with red deliciousness bred in. The sunsugar and solid gold are yellow varieties.    It is a good time for peanuts as well. Do any of you know how to parch peanuts. My grandfather was a pro at parching p-nuts. I recently read in a book written in the 1880s telling of how good the p-nuts were when properly parched.    Eggplant and pepper season are here! We have some interesting varieties of eggplants. The Black Bianca  is an Italian eggplant prized for quality. We have white eggplant in its prime now. Several versions of Asian eggplant also. If you google ( Epicurious, eggplant) you can find recipes for how to use the different  eggplant types. In general the long skinny ones are good for stir fry and the white ones are most often a little sweeter. Occasionally you might see a yellow eggplant which generally is stronger in flavor. The large globe are good for the grill.     For those interested in organic vegetables we have lots of the eggplants, peppers and just getting in okra. If you will call ahead we can have some set aside for you at he farm market. Sarah generally has a good supply with her at the Myrtles Market.  Not enough time to tell you about the potatoes, honey, ham and other good things.  A grateful heart most often makes the day sweeter.
