My parents sent me an express mail package 😲😨😲😨 with one of my favorite fruits ever. (Did you see the postage?) Since I had surgery they want me get healthy nutrients to have a better recovery. So of course I had to make some juice 😊. Got 2 gallons of wonderful homegrown guanábana (sour sop). They also sent me the leaves to make wonderful tea.
Yes! We went back for more!!! 2 days of roadside apple picking!!! Lots of labor ? but worth it. I can smell pies, pies, pies!!!…crumbles. ..sauces….coffee cakes!!! I better get to canning!!!
So about 2 weeks ago we noticed a bit further down the road, more apple trees!!! Got all these apples and it has plenty left. Might go back… but couldn’t do it without hubby!!!? @redskins29 … he thinks I’m apple crazy!!! I’ll be canning more but it’s going to be a good fall and winter with yummy apple desserts ?
We on a mission! 25 pints of red apple pie fillings ?…. can’t wait to make some goodies!!! Now on to the next batch of green apples ?
Apple pie filling in the making. Next few days the spices scents will roam around the house ?…
I’m so Thankful for this summer harvest season, I can’t wait to share our goodies!
Blackberry watermelon jelly!
Today’s harvest from down the road!
So look what we have down the road… a crabapple tree! And we picked and picked away!!!! This tree has to be at least 100 years old. It’s gigantic! It’s as big or more than the old maple trees around here. The trunk is huge. I’ll be making some jelly in the next few days. The crabapples are small to medium size with a dark green and burgundy skin color.
