The Long Trip For A Gem

While the peaches were at their perfection, juicy globes of sunshine, there was a dog to pick up in Memphis, Tennessee!  Isn't that just the way it happens?  We "divvied" up the canners and the drivers.
The photographer, the picture taker took on a dual role as a driver and "historian".  Went along with the girls to pick up the little nine month old Gemma.  She is so named as yes, she is a JEWEL!

We, Ray and I stayed behind to make jam, ice cream, sorbet and chutney and filled the freezer with loads of juicy fruit.

Our future Chef who is seriously considering a transfer from her University in Rhode Island to a campus in Denver, Colorado wanted to check it out during this journey and so they did.

This long trip involved a LOT of driving and the crew suffered from "flat butt syndrome" but returned to us safe and sound a week later!  We are one little Gemma richer!  Also made a big dent in the peach harvest.

The long 2016 mile trip from Hollister, CA to Memphis, TN was an adventure.  These pictures speak for themselves........
