We are enjoying the wind down after a really good harvest. Plenty of things to do including putting away all the harvest stuff in our barn, draining the irrigation pipes, mowing to discourage the mice and voles, cleaning up flower beds, putting machinery away for the winter. Sylvia has made 60 quarts of apple sauce and an occasional pie.
We are planning a short trip to the coast of Maine week after next and then trips at Thanksgiving and Christmas to spoil the grandchildren.
Thanks to everyone who came to help us get the apples harvested. Pictures show our now quiet orchard plus rainbow and sunset.
