Here's the totals for 5 boxes of apples:
30 apple pies
4 apple crisps
13 quarts of applesauce
7 quarts cinnamon apples (these were supposed to apple filling, but I didn't like the recipe)
10 gallons of dried apple chips
50 apples for eating
lots of cores and peels for chicken food
I'm hoping to get one more pie out of them tonight!
This weekend I'm moving on to a case of pears that are ripening on my kitchen table. Date night with Superman. Outdoor Movie Night with the chickadees. Oooooo and making baby burp clothes for a cutie pie that will be born in the new year! I also probably should clean up craft room which looks like a bomb exploded in it and help make 4 Sweet Sisters Pumpkin Bread!
Have a Great weekend!

Here are some heirloom tomatoes. No blooms as of yet.
The lettuce had trouble. So I need to plant again. We are using a ground water system and the lettuce, kohlrabi and other really need to be hand watered for the first month or so. I haven't had a chance to replant and I'm missing the lettuce.
Hopefully this weekend we will get some fertilizer down, check for weeds. (Superman and the little chickadees pulled a bunch after our vacation.) Make more apple pies and lots of 4 Sweet Sisters Pumpkin Bread!
We're trying decide on a ground cover for weed control. We've a free mulch in that past, but it's very big and chunky. Any ideas?
