First of all, let me say that I'm so glad and relieved that my old friend from California who now lives in Naples (Florida) posted on Facebook last night. I just saw her message saying she's fine. She didn't get flooded out by Hurricane Irma, and she has only minor wind damage to repair. The storm blew down a big oak tree in her yard, but it didn't fall on her house.
Finishing up with the peach saga, above is a photo of the compote that I made day before yestarday and put in plastic containers for storage. Walt and I have both eaten some, in yogurt and on toast, and it's delicious. I think one container will go into the freezer for later.
Following up with tomato progress, look at all these that were sitting out on the table on the terrace yesterday morning. The chairs are propped up like that because we were having strong gusts and wind-driven rain and we didn't want the chair seats to fill up with water. It's still raining this morning, by the way, but it's not so windy.
Walt made those tomatoes on the table into sauce yesterday. I'm not sure whether we will turn that sauce into paste, the way we did with the last batch of red tomatoes (above), or keep it as sauce. Either way, we'll enjoy it this fall and winter.
To wrap up, the grape harvest is in full swing. Many of the grapes have now been taken in. The harvester and tractor in this photo worked to bring in a couple of parcels of Sauvignon Blanc fruit yesterday. I saw the tractor and trailer go by the house a minute or two after taking this picture, and the trailer was nearly overflowing with white grapes.
