Eating the Fruit

Leave a comment

Fruit
Apples, plums, choke cherries
peaches, apricots all home grown.
Late September from the magnificent orchards–El Salto!
The women happily picking, packing and canning!
Fruit straining the laughter
oh so real!

Twenty-eight days of smashing
all the fruit from the bone
counting, stirring, singing to celebrate
with sparkling pink wine waitingtill next year
Harvest and wine!
