1st Home Grown Apple Harvest



This is our first year for home grown apples. The bare root trees that we planted 2 years ago produced enough apples for 7 pints of apple butter. I know we are going to savor every last bite. How exciting also, to know that we will probably get twice as many next year. Mmmmm maybe enough for apple pie too.

HI! Found you again! Yeah...I can't believe you made that apple butter, you didn't tell me. AWESOME! Sent dejavu down my spine. Oh how I want some of my old life back, at least that part.
Apple butter, canning pickles and stuffed peppers and anything else I could get my hands on...wistful sigh, I'll have to live vicariously through you... LOL
