A Peach Tree Grows In Brooklyn.


A Peach Tree Grows In Brooklyn
Copyright La PETITE Blog 2012



     In life there are some occurrences that are both a delight and bewilderment - case in point the picture above. I live in NYC on an (most of the time) idyllic street in Brooklyn - but like any big city people love to litter especially on my front lawn. Long story short, unbeknownst to me (or my landscaper) a litter fairy tossed a peach pit onto my lawn and abracadabra two years later I have peaches! Now this has been both a blessing and a curse (I caught the mail courier 'snatching' a few peaches) I have to say it has just intensified my commitment to eating fresh, clean and healthy. 

 Since this is the first season that the peaches have fully bloomed and are currently ripening (YUM!);  I am concocting peach-tastic menus featuring  Strawberry-Peach Preserves from culinary Goddess Sarabeth Levine , a mean jerk shrimp + peach + arugula salad and endless peach smoothies! While the tree itself was not planned it is truly appreciated and has inspired me to convert my backyard into a full-fledged petite farm (I am moving the tree back there as well). With the my new farm (I brought the seeds people!) I am now seriously considering splurging on the new GE French Door Refrigerator to ensure that when my légumes start to sprout I will be able to store it without the worry of spoiling (like Ben & Justin's wild Freshpedtion - just without the alligators). With ultra-filtered water from the first ever hands-free dispenser, and micro-climate controls powered by TwinChill technology, the new GE French Door Refrigerator is engineered to push the limits of fresh.  And fresh I will be with all my decadent treats stored in my new refrigerator. While I detest the litter fairies who roam my neighborhood vandalizing the streets I must admit this time it was actually in my favor! 



 So by next year I will not only be a haute body girl (thanks to all the clean eating) I will be fully equipped with storage just in time for harvest... and Marva the mail courier won't be swapping my goods!
