If it seems like I talk about peaches a lot, feel free to tell me about it. If God made anything better than peaches He kept it for Himself. If not for peaches, Earthly Sojourn might be dull indeed.
There are two huge peaches that I know of in America. There could be more but since I don't know about them they probably do not exist. Imagine how I felt upon leaving home for the greater world only to discover that peaches grow in other counties and states. I thought we invented them and owned them.
So many are grown in Spartanburg County, South Carolina that one of the water tanks actually looks like a peach. How did that happen? The other large peach stands beside Interstate 65 near Clanton, Alabama. It turns out that sandy soil, plenty of water and warm weather with a minimum of late spring cold snaps is what really counts. I am glad it turned out that way.
