this time we picked apples

Heidi came out for another visit today. We picked apples for applesauce and apple juice, and whatever else strikes our canning fancy. We won't have any shortage of apples considering we have 6 apple trees. That's a lot of apples.

Yep, that's my baby sister in the apple tree. She's picking the heck out of those apples. No really, she is!

Even after picking all of these, we didn't even make a dent in one tree. Five more to go. Looks like we have a lot more apple picking ahead of us.

Isobel was happy as could be playing with the wagon load of apples. I think she even snuck in a tiny bite or two. I like apples with baby bites the best.

We processed the last batch of grape juice, for a grand total of 58 quarts of juice from our grape arbor (hooray!).

And we started to make salsa, but we had to put it on hold until tomorrow. The weather is starting to turn very cold, and a lot of wind is forcast, so we will have to see just what we can get done this next week.
