Last week we picked apples for cider again, maybe 15 bushels or more. We have lots of apple trees - surrounded by even more thorn trees and briars. It makes for interesting picking. It's also in our pasture.
Everyone likes to get involved, until a couple of hours into apple picking, then they're done until we head for the press.
A very sanitary process as you can see.
Hmm...I'm not sure many hands make light work.
In they go
Up the conveyor
through the wash system
chopped up apples get layered
Until the batch is ready to be pressed.
Just what every parent loves...eager helpers...everywhere.
We finally got jobs spread out.
Emily set out jugs, one kid filled, one capped, I rinsed,
and one filled up the back of the truck.
Stop by for a drink. :-)
