50 Fresh Garden Desserts

And maybe a hint of “what do I DO with all of this food?” Because not only did I buy a huge lot of peaches, but I also bought raspberries, squash, strawberries, more squash and apples. I have no idea WHY I bought apples, I’ve got a tree outside with tons of apples ready for picking on it.  healthy desserts
