How-to manual for finding a perfectly pluckable peach

The good peach should have some weight, a heft in your hand. She should fill your fingers. Now, exert a light tension with the pads of your fingers on the skin, a tugging apart, fingers and thumb pulling in opposite directions, just so. If she’s ready, the skin will part to reveal glistening, succulent flesh.

I’ve been so busy writing there’s been no time to blog lately. It’s almost peach season, so I thought I’d take a minute and share a possibly useful, if fictional, peach picking technique from one of my characters. Bond really was talking about peaches. What he had on his mind…that’s another matter.

    What works for peaches works for other things as well.
    Succulent being the Key Word.

    Being a Georgia girl by birth, I was drawn to your 55 – I do know about succulent peaches but, wow, the erotic overtones here….mmmmmmm, made me want to bake my famous Southern Comfort Peach Pie and have something else for dessert as well!
