I forgot to get a picture of the pumpkin on their porch that was puking. Cute family picture inserted instead.
Trace's bag is starting to get heavy. There is a very warm wind, and his costume (tigger) doesn't breathe so well.......
We filled up all four boxes in under twenty minutes, and the trees were still hanging like they were about to split. The sun was now gone behind the coastal fog hovering in the "west" but it did leave behind a little pink to enjoy for a minute or two.
I had then decided that four boxes weren't enough to satisfy my intense cider making party plan, so I began brainstorming about what I was going to do next. We unloaded the boxes into the element, and began to fill the blue cart. Grammie was out scrounging up some other boxes, but I knew how much they meant to her, so I knew that I was not going to take even one of them away from her. We filled up the blue cart, around the same time that it got so dark the apples could no longer be seen. I think we almost got them all, but until the sun shone again on the fruit trees, it will be left a mystery. I think we got enough to keep me busy.
Grammie came up with a garbage can that "had never been used" for garbage. She seemed more than willing to part with it for a time while it becomes an apple storage. At the time it was being used as bird food storage. The cart almost filled the whole thing up! I know I have very poor spacial skills, but I was still very surprised for the successful gathering.
Looks like everyone is happy!!!
The apples were sweet, with a bite of sourness. I love cameo apples, and the choice ones of these are comparable. It is going to make super good cider. I am going to try out some cider jam too, it sounds really good. Maybe an apple crisp............
I thought that I should rinse out the garbage can before we put the apples in it....Even though it had never been used for garbage. Grammie still had to show me how to turn the water on. So her punishment for showing me up was me taking a picture of her. That outta teach her!
I have a huge amount of work ahead of me, but I think it is all going to work out good. I have access to an apple press for free this year, I just need to get something to grind up the apples. I should be able to figure something out, I do have access to the internet!
Seriously, look at those dimples!!? Pretty hot!
So since he killed this deer, that meant he had a lot of work ahead of him. He did work really hard Saturday, since we already had plans to see his sister and family on Sunday. I believe he got it almost all cut up by Sunday night. I don't want to post any of the bloody pictures of the mangled animal hanging from rope by his own antlers, but I think anyone can imagine.
But another hot picture of a super manly man wouldn't hurt I don't think :)
