Delicious, juicy, mouth watering peaches. That’s what the lucky folks in Texas and Oklahoma received last week and thank you to them for making the last shipment, the first one of 2014, a success.
About 4 days prior to leaving I received a call from the farmer telling me that he sold all of the peaches he had reserved for me. I picked up the phone immediately and began calling every farmer in the Hill Country that I could find. The Hill Country is where the best peaches come from.
Upon my second day of freaking out, I finally found a farmer who agreed to provide the peaches for me, but he said they were small, not big like the ones I had promised my customers and that the original farmer promised me.
But, he said, they were DELICIOUS!
I called each one of my customers and told them what happened and they were all understanding. Fresh isn't always the prettiest, but it's always the best.
What reflections did I have while on the shipment? Southern Texas is a beautiful place, and that I cannot believe the speed limits in Texas.
The peaches ended up tasting amazing, and I couldn’t even hold onto enough for me.
See you again next week!
