Well, apple picking time has arrived full force.
( I could really use your help Kristina for the next month!)
My goal this past week has been to pick 12 crates of apples each night after work.
The volume of fruit this season is overwhelming, but I have to start somewhere.
Everything is two weeks early.
And multiple varieties are ready at the same time.
I thought I had a lead on a used apple washing machine this past week, but found out too late. A new set up is several thousand dollars which I simply can not justify. Neither do I have time to hand wash 25,000 apples, so once things slow down this winter, I am giving serious thought to fabricating my own set up from scratch.
My days the past several weeks have been so packed between my real job building houses, the harvest table business that seems to be taking off, and now the apple harvest, I haven’t had time to read or comment on many of your blogs as much as I would like to.
I did place an order with Visti-prints and had 5 of my photos turned into post cards…(let me know if you’d like to purchase some..they are $.50 each or (5) for $2.00. (just leave me a comment and I will be in touch via e-mail)
Here are a couple of the pictures:

Tell me something about apples and your life. (It could be a memory of going to a favorite orchard when you were little, an apple recipe, a variety you like and why,), It just has to have some connection (however small) with apples. 😉
Thanks for reading along! DM
