More Apples than you can shake a stick at!


This was the third harvest this year of apples.  All were about the same size…. 30 gallons of apples or more!  I am using my cider press to turn these all into delicious raw apple cider for guests (and myself of course!)

Today I was literally shaking a stick at the apples to get the last of the high ones down.  Some are still left, too high or too protected by other branches to get to.  Well I guess the deer and my cattle can have a few for themselves.

It’s been an incredible year for apples and for black-berries.  I have picked several gallons of black berries this year but its much more tedious and slow than are apples.  I’ll keep working at it and see how much I end up with before the season is over.

Here are some shots from harvest time in the past…
