It's to the point where I know my family thinks I'm a little crazy because I won't, "Just go to the store," if we don't have something on hand. I feel like I'm the only sane person in the world sometimes, when I'm willing to acknowledge that, say, eggplant, isn't in season right now, and just EAT SOMETHING ELSE instead of buying crappy ones flown in from Mexico or wherever.
....confident that this flawed produce is still of better overall quality than what we could get in the store.

Two of them were good and one of them had four fast little larvae (Oriental fruit moth maybe?) living large next to the pit, eating and pooping and turning everything mushy and brown. It's no surprise; my state's cooperative extension says that backyard peach production is essentially impossible here due to the extensive regime of pesticide spraying that you "need". I'm just happy to be getting some good ones.
