Summer is ending here in Maine.

A brisk chill fills the air as evening approaches and dew is on the meadow.

This morning I caught a glimpse of two hard working Home Place Fairies as they wheeled a wooden cart towards my peach orchard.

The rest of their day will be spent preparing the peaches for winter storage.

The fairies will fill jars of cling peaches; they will make peach cobbler, peach crisp and even peach pie!
