It’s a wonderful time of year in New Jersey: the peaches are finally available in the farmer’s markets. These are the best tasting peaches…um, yum, de-de dum. It was even worth traipsing off during the heat wave last Friday to get yet another bag.
The peaches are beautiful to behold as well as eat. Can I have my peach and eat it, too?
Small tomatoes in my garden are finally ripe. I also have some garden grown cucumbers (my first year growing cucumbers). I saw one of my bigger tomatoes finally turning red. How long will I hold out before picking it?

Can I have my peach and eat it, too?
LOL! That’s the beauty of blogging: even after you eat it in the real world, you can still have it in the blogosphere… 🙂
“She had a complexion like peach skin”,I’ve read it in some forgettable novel, but the words came back, when I saw your pictures.
Wouldn’t that be nice; flawless, soft and reddish?
If I get my greenhouse before I’m eighty, I’ll try tomato growing too.
As for now, I can just envy you the delicious fruits. (I mean somebody told me, theywere fruit and not vegetables.
Gunnar was fine with portraying Shylock. The pictures I took during the play were a catastrophic. Besides, he’s assumed to have 1/16 or 1/32 Jewish genes. One can see it on his brother, but on this closeup he’s as good a Shylock as any.
To get a better understanding of Ulysses, it’s almost necessary to have a certain knowledge about Irish history. I wrote a special paper about Home Rule for Ireland in 1967, and have been caught up with the Irish ever since.
I wouldn´t mind to taste one or two of them. They are really tasty and juicy now.
You have once again managed to capture the velvety texture of the peaches in a nice way. And the tomatoes look very appetizing.
I do like photographing peaches, don’t I?
At least you’re good at it! 🙂
A sweet ruby tomato is a wonderful treat – it would be easy to pick and ass a dash of salt to enhance the sweetness. We have a few tomatoes, mostly the small 100s that ripen faster. fresh tomato and basil salad, it can’t be too far away – we hope…
Mmmmm, peaches! Having transplanted from LI to FL a few years back, peach season comes a bit sooner for me now – but I look just as forward to it as I did when I was up there.
Tomatoes and peaches are my favourites and they are a great source of antioxidants too.
I love peaches
Wonderful shots. I love peaches.
There is some good produce here too. I love this time of year as we can find organics grown locally….
A good peach is a glorious thing (though I prefer nectarines cause I don’t like the fuzzy skin on peaches). That first shot of the peaches and tomatoes in the background is my favorite. They’re all great shots.
Thanks for telling me your favorite; I always enjoy hearing which shot strikes someone the most.
Yumm, you’re making me hungry!
Leora, such delicious, RED peaches and tomatoes! Nice job! You have a gree–, ah, RED thumb! Ha! 🙂

I’ve fallen in love with our local farmer’s market. We have lots of produce stands in our area but there is something about a farmer’s market that is just so enticing. Your produce looks luscious and yummy.
Delicious looking peaches and tomatoes!
Farmer’s Markets are a delight in summer.
I can almost taste those tomatoes and peaches they looks so good.
