Apple Harvest

In between fall storms the peninsula is paradise. We have been reveling in days of little wind, intense sun and cool mornings. The shortening days make one appreciate these days even more.

One of the activities that get our attention is harvesting apples. Apples of all kinds, including the derelict orchards we sometimes find in the woods. But today it was a friend's mini orchard that needed pickin. A ladder, a bucket, a trailer behind a tractor and three of us can pick a tree clean in no time, enjoying the weather and companionship as we do so.
