For the last few days, many people, young and old, have been participating in Halloween-related activities. They dressed in costumes, attended parties and consumed candy. Some people even decorated their yards and homes for the festivities. Whether or not you celebrated the holiday, you might have unknowingly decorated for it if you have a peach tree in your yard. Go outside and take a peek. Do you have any brown shriveled seeds hanging from your tree or laying on the ground?

katec@herald-mail.com The peach - that fuzzy, pinkish-golden, juicy fruit - can be canned, dried, frozen, baked, jammed and jellied. "Getting them fresh off the tree is tough to beat," says Eric LeMasters, horticulture consultant in Washington County with the Cooperative Extension Service of the University of Maryland. In season, the peach can be eaten all by itself - the sweet-tart juice escaping with the first bite - tasting like summer itself. Fat and cholesterol free, a peach - at about 40 to 60 calories - is a sweet way to check off one of five colorful fruits and vegetables a day recommended in a healthy diet.

MERCERSBURG, Pa. - The time has passed for peppermint. No more room for tree-shaped sugar cookies and other confections sprinkled in festive red and green. Christmas is over. We need a party cookie. A conversational piece all on their own, Bonnie Line's peach cookies might work well on any New Year's party menu. This ain't no chocolate chip. These cookies are super sweet and look like bite-sized peaches, color and all. Dry peach and cherry Jell-O Gelatin mix gives the peach cookies color and flavor.

OK. Where were we? Last week we answered - or thought we answered - a reader's question about where to find peach extract, an ingredient in the peach cookie recipe that won the best-of-show prize for Shannon and Elizabeth Bittner at Washington County Ag Expo. [cont. from news page ] We called around and learned that Martin's Farm Market, 13613 Pennsylvania Ave. in Hagerstown, sells what we called peach extract. It is what Martin's Farm Market called peach extract, as well as what Elizabeth Bittner called peach extract.

Not even a crushed ankle could keep die-hard fisherman Mark Hollinshead of Ortanna, Pa., from his favorite fishing spot at Wilson College along Conococheague Creek in Chambersburg, Pa., on Saturday, the opening day of trout season in Pennsylvania. Marking his 26th consecutive year at his “lucky” fishing hole, Hollinshead, 45, used salmon/peach power bait to catch the five-trout limit.

Crops look peachy, after all By VANDANA SINHA Staff Writer Orchardists surveying their peach and apple crops said this year's spring freeze and summer drought did not do as much harm as they had predicted. "I thought with the bad weather, we would really be suffering. But the crops are coming through pretty decently. I'm really amazed," said Roy Byers, of Linden Hall Orchards south of Hagerstown. Most orchardists and agriculture experts expected a near total loss of peach and apple yields after an overnight freeze April 9 brought temperatures down to nearly 20 degrees.

The summer sun scorched my skin. My dry throat yearned for something cool and refreshing. I wanted something not only tasty, but also healthy and fresh. So began my quest for the tastiest smoothie in the Hagerstown area - a smoothie that was good and made with real fruit, served in a nice atmosphere and bought for a reasonable price. My first stop was the Square Cup Caf in downtown Hagers-town. I opened the heavy front door, and was surrounded by the aroma of fresh coffee and warm muffins.

The 300 gallons of peach ice cream turned for the small community's popular two-day festival in northern Washington County was in high demand, too. Some things never change, thankfully. “Pretty much tastes the same ... creamy,” said Gloria Robinson, smiling as she and her husband, Vince, savored the last of their frozen treat served in a small white Styrofoam bowl at Leitersburg Ruritan Community Park. The festival, the Leitersburg Ruritan Club's largest annual fundraiser, continues Sunday from noon to 5 p.m., in the park behind Leitersburg Fire Hall.

Once you met Margaret “Ann” Terrett, you were a friend for life. “I think the most important thing - when you met Mom for the first time, you might not know her, but when you left, you were a friend,” said son Robert “Bobby” Terrett of Keedysville. She didn't like to be called Margaret, though, so husband Robert “Bob” Terrett only called her Margaret when he wanted to get a rise out of her. Ann Garner was born in Washington, D.C., and grew up in Greenbelt, Md., the third of six children.
