First Peaches of the Year

I got an e-mail from Sterken Farms (541-260-7755) yesterday letting me know that their "Earlytreat" peaches were ready to pick, along with some of their cherries. I was the first one there, basket in hand, at 9 am this morning.

I've never tried this variety before, but local peaches were in very short supply last summer due to the snow we had in April, so I am excited to see what these are like. They are small, but the three trees were loaded with easy-to-reach fruit.

I'm hoping enough will soften in time to make a peach pie for Father's Day.
