To the Orchard!

A huge, Huge, HUGE Thank You to R. & J.

They let me have all the apples I wanted, and pears too! You know some apple sauce, apple butter, pears, and all kinds of yummy goodness is heading over that fence!

They have some land in the country with a couple apple trees. No pesticides. All natural grow like crazy, branches so full they almost touched the ground apple trees. And a couple pear trees.

I have 2 overflowing large laundry baskets of apples for about 2.5 hours of picking. And in 5 minutes, I filled a 5-gallon bucket with pears!

I have some serious canning ahead of me!

I wonder how much all those apples weigh?

Mmmmm, yummy! Makes me wish we lived in the northeast! Oh, well, I'll just have to live vicariously through you for the time being!
