Mom and I took the kids to Eddy's Fruit Farm the other day. I just love that place. It is a locally owned family orchard and farm. The owners are a family from a homeschooling co-op to which we once belonged. Before going into the orchard, we were given bags for our apples and the command to "eat all you'd like". As you can see, we are good at following directions. :) We ended up picking 60 pounds of apples on our trip. Today, we spent the day canning applesauce and making pie filling.
On that note, I miss my chest freezer. It petered out when we moved last winter and I still haven't replaced it. So, with no freezer, we had to can the applesauce rather than freeze it as we usually do. Canning takes quite a bit longer but was still a fun way to spend the afternoon. And we'll have some good food put up for the winter months.
