Imperfect Peaches

This year, the peach harvest is a bit patchy, as our trees have been beset by many insects, including Japanese beetles.

Despite this, we have had a number of peaches ripen.

Peaches and pears gathered today
When the peaches are marred by unsightly pock marks, I wash them and cut them into small edible slices.

Two large peaches can make enough dessert for three.

The slices are then distributed among three glass cups ...

        ... and topped with whipped cream.

We all enjoyed our peaches and cream today.

Nobody complained about the fruit's imperfections.
