I’m going to warn you up front and be honest – these photos were not taken in the New England area. I took a trip down to Virginia (and of course I brought some Boston Snow Storms with me!) and visited Chiles Orchard in Crozet, Virginia and Veritas Winery in Afton, Virginia.
Although Chiles was closed I got a couple pictures of the peach trees, notice their pruning style (in the shape of a Y). This helps to keep disease down, air circulation up, and makes it easier to pick peaches. At Veritas I snapped a few pics of their veranda that has grape vines overhead – what a windy highway of vines!
Chiles Peach Orchard – must get their Peach Ice Cream!! And pick peaches! Would love to go in the Spring and see those Blooms – WOO WEE!!
Veritas Vineyard – This vineyard has some of my most favorite views in the central Virginia area. Wow. Go for their ‘Starry Night’ Series – great music, great views, under the stars, dancing, kid friendly, and lots of places for the kids to run around ! Really no better way to spend a summer evening.
Enjoy this winter, it is not so bad. Plus, Spring will be here before you know it!
