peach crisp

I used the last of the peaches to make a simple peach crisp. 

The mornings have been nice and cool, so I decided to take a slice outside with my morning coffee and enjoy the weather before the heat sets in. 

We did everything we were not supposed to with our peach tree...we were told not to expect many fruit this first year and what was produced, should be thinned out considerably.  Of course, when those little fruit actually appeared, I didn't have the heart to pick any of them off.

It was actually sad to pick that last peach.  I'm already looking forward to next year, I just hope our luck holds out and the peaches are plump and plentiful again.

Next in the garden?  I'm waiting on our pumpkins, the orange blossoms will be showing up in the next couple of months and the tomatoes are still plentiful, along with the basil which shows no sign of slowing down.  Ohhh...I think the day calls for a nice big pot of slow simmering sauce for spaghetti. 

I hope your harvest is bountiful, too!


  1. Oh fresh peaches! What a sweet way to celebrate the last peach of the season! Pretty pictures!


  2. This peach crisp looks and sounds so good right now....I made a plum and peach crisp last week and it barely made two days lasting in this house, I love crisps'! Have a great day! Xoxoxo

  3. Oh I just made a huge crockpot of homemade sp. sauce last week to use up some of my tomatoes. Your peaches look so good. Nectar of the Gods. I wish I could grow pumpkins. I just cannot do it. I try every year. I think I just don't have the space and enough sun.

  4. That looks so good. Our farmer's market peaches are all gone, too. Lucky you to have your own tree and garden.

  5. Golly, you are making me drool. What a way to start the day. makes me tempted to go buy a tree and plant it.

    I will be looking for your pumpkin post.

  6. How wonderful to have a peach tree! Peaches are my favorite fruit. That crisp looks yummy!!

  7. Well I am now going to have to plant a peach tree...like I had years ago..and I was wanting peach cobbler today...sounds like you have some wonderful bounty coming soon.

  8. Those peaches look divine! How fun to have a garden full of yummy things to eat! Always something to look forward to.

  9. Oh that looks yummy! You make me miss my childhood home because we had two peach trees on our property. The most vivid memory I have of those trees is one year my grandparents came to visit and asked if they could have some peaches. My parents said okay and handed them a box while they continued with some work. Well, my grandparetns stripped both trees and took all our peaches. We were so mad because we were looking forward to a pie soon too!

    Good luck on a good peach season next year!

  10. Oh my gosh...love peaches! Please tell me this recipe comes in a Weight Watchers version! :) TEE HEE! We only have UGLY Scrub Oaks on our property...:( What I wouldn't give for a Peach Tree with FRUIT!

    Thank you for visiting me sweet lady. I've got my thinkin' cap on with the tote bag...

    Love to you~


  11. You have a peach tree?!! That is wonderful. My husband just picked up some Georgia peaches at a roadside stand. So ripe that the juice runs right down your chin and so sweet.
    I made a peach cobbler last night.

  12. I almost bought a couple of pounds of peaches this morning at the farmers market. They're so inexpensive right now. I wish I had. Your crisp looks so good!

  13. Do you have a recipe for your peach crisp? It looks delicious!
    Glad you have found your balance between blogging and family.
    Have a great day!

  14. I just made grilled peaches with chocolate and vanilla ice cream. Peach salsa is next. I hadn't thought about peach crisp before. Will have to give it a try. Lovely photos.

  15. Peach crisp and coffee sounds like a wonderful way to spend a quiet morning outside. :) I hope next year's peaches are just as lovely for you! :)

    How has your week been? I hope you are doing well, and that you have a great Friday! :)


  16. This dish looks delish! Love all the bright colors of your lovely little cottage. Fun visiting you today!
