Sucking on a peach pit is the perfect way to while away a steamy summer afternoon.

All this while the taste of fresh peach tingles through your cheeks.
One of the first things Dad did when we moved into the big house in Belleville was to chop down the black walnut trees and plant a half-dozen peach trees in their stead.
