We went on our most favorite field trip of the year, apple picking and pumpkin picking. This has become a tradition and we look forward to it every year. We picked quite a few apples and made a big batch of crockpot applesauce and two apple pies. I ended up splurging for this apple peeler, corer, slicer and I am so glad I did. It cut my prep time of the apples in half. I'm halfway tempted to go back and pick some more apples so I can put up some applesauce for the rest of the year.
Looking forward to planting some apple trees here on our farm. The list is long of our plans for this farm! Next years garden is going to be HUGE! With a big pumpkin patch. That is what I say now! HA! We are hoping to start working on some fencing soon so we can get some livestock on this grass. We have six pastures that all need repair. It can get overwhelming just thinking about it. But I am excited to start. We just need some time. We are in the thick of football season and, the days are getting shorter. But, it's all good, and we'll get there.
I think I'll have a piece of pie.
