|hmm, no thanks..|
After running a couple of errands yesterday morning we had a bit of time up our sleeve before heading home and so decided to make a stop at our current favourite pick-your-own farm (you may remember our strawberry excursion there earlier this year). The apples are in full swing at the moment and we could choose from three different varieties to pick. I love seeing those girls of mine get such delight from picking fruit! They would never get this excited about apples in the shops. I love how the excitement comes home with us too..and they munch on apples just because they are out on the table..and they happened to harvest them with their own hands.
We came home with a bulging bag of Fujis and two more of Granny Smiths. It's a good thing I haven't completely packed away the Fowlers preserving kit yet..it's just inched it's way slowly towards the cupboard in hubby's study..slowly. Easily retrieved though! The Fuji's are great for eating and the Granny Smiths will be going straight into jars.
Are you picking fruit? Or preserving some perhaps?
