Blackberry-Peach Tart

I made this Sunday afternoon after picking blackberries, and our friends Karen and Bill joined us for dessert. MMMM....

I got the peaches from the Card Farm in Bowdoin. Frank Card grows peaches, plums, raspberries, highbush blueberries and vegetables on land that has been in his family since the early 1700s. We had a very interesting chat with Mr. Card, who has traced his ancestors all the way back to their arrival in the new world in Kittery, Maine.

At his farm, we saw rows and rows of blueberries and peaches, and a gorgeous view to the western mountains. I am looking forward to the day my blueberries are as productive and beautiful.

The visit left me inspired to order peach trees to plant next spring, and maybe apricots as well.
