this first shot is from the rooftop as rick prepared to clean our chimney. i love looking at it all from above (the goats wouldn't fit). next year i am going to make him go up in the summer when it is sunny and *full* looking:)
last weekend we picked our apples. we have four trees on our property that we pick from (and six or so that we need to prune and find our way to...someday).
yesterday we pressed them. we were joined by some friends for the occasion. they were taking the adult road and using the cider to make applejack and mead...we took the g rated version and are swigging cider by the cup full in leaning apple land. we also will be making applesauce and freezing some sliced apples for pies and breads and muffins this winter.
p.s. it snowed.
