Peaches, Beans and Mars

Peaches, Beans and Mars

What is the big deal about peaches, beans and Mars.
That is just what I have been busy doing.


 I order peaches from our local grocery store. 
4 Lugs of fresh Georgia peaches!
And in the start of a Wisconsin heat wave, I was busy canning peaches!


 After sweating away in the kitchen, the next day I took a trip to Mars.

Journey To Space
at the 
Science Museum of Minnesota

I will have more on this journey in a future On the Road Friday post.



Space an Out of Gravity Experience


And the beans are ready!

Wishing you all a great weekend.

  2. Ok, so when I read your post title, I was trying to figure out how all those things were going to fit together. I pondered a bit before I clicked. Now I get it! I haven't had peaches in forever!

  7. Lovely, I just finished making peach freezer jam, it's my most favorite one. And now I'm off to search for a recipe for dilly beans.

    Sounds like a trip to Mar's is just what is needed.

  15. Before going to Scotland I was told that the national desert was a fried Mars bar. I must admit that I didn't see that myself but when I first read your post title I was dreading to see where it was all going. Outer space came as a nice surprise!

  18. Oh my goodness...Georgia peaches! So juicy that when you bite into them the juice just runs down your chin...in a not so lady like fashion! :-) The taste of summer!

  19. Yum, I love peaches! I haven't been able to get any from the farmers market yet this summer, so I need to go soon before they are all gone. I love your cute farmhouse sink by the way!

  23. Carla, your peaches look delicious. I haven't had canned peaches in such a long time. There's nothing quite like them. Your trip sounds fantastic, and looking forward to seeing more pictures. My son would have loved that science museum when he was growing up. Love this pic in the space suits.

    Have a peaceful Sunday, Carla.
