Thirty Peachtree City-ites from First Baptist Church boarded a bus early yesterday morning, and headed via beautifully verdant back roads toward William Brown's orchards in Montezuma, Georgia. We bought peaches and produce and enjoyed delicious homemade peach ice cream! The zinnias in Brown's bounteous self-pick fields were beautiful and inviting, but with high humidity, and close to 100 degrees, it was simply TOO hot to contemplate picking anything! !
We also enjoyed a lunch of fresh vegetables, meats, and baked goods and Yoder's Mennonite restaurant, then stopped in Thomaston for Dairy Queen snacks on the drive home. All the good food put many of us to sleep on the bus on the way back! A good time was had by all!
Next month's JOY trip: Blue Willow Inn.
