In the beautiful Deua River Valley west of Moruya, farmers benefit from rich country and decent water. We visited this farm where several generations of a family are growing peaches and vegetables.
Peaches are the taste of summer for me! All that juicy sweetness and fragrance, peach juice dripping down my arm, explosions of flavour in my mouth … oh yes, that is summer.
My favourites are the white fleshed peaches, just what young Luke sells at the Moruya Farmer’s Market, luckily for me. Here they are being sorted and packed. Can you smell them already?
The river flows under trees along the edge of the property, just the place to cool off. I rather wish I was there now, since the wind here on the coast is far too strong this afternoon, and I won’t be swimming in the sea until it calms down.
What is your favourite taste of summer?
