Harvest Time

It's apple harvest time!

Can you believe it?
Well, you might believe it from where you are,
but... here...we have yet to even have a summer's worth of hot weather.

Still, I am not complaining.
I am not complaining...no, I am picking apples!!
And while they might not be the most beautiful apples,
they are quite tasty.... the best looking apple harvest we have ever had.

And making applesauce.
Hubbs (who loves to tackle jobs with the appropriate tool) was in charge of
peeling apples...

I did the rest....

and voila!  Pie!
Delicious fresh, homegrown apple pie in a flaky, all butter crust.

We are also harvesting carrots...

and giving the tops to....

Our hay is cut...keep your fingers crossed that we can get it to dry,
and get it baled before it gets rained upon.


  1. i bet that pie was delicious! it must be wonderful to have your own apples.

  2. Busy, busy days for you . . .
    Time for Apple pie though . . .
    Wish I could stop over for a piece!

  3. We are to get rain Wednesday and Thursday I think. Hope you get it bailed. Looks like hubs was having a good time. The pie looks wonderful.

  4. Fall is in the air.....scrumptious looking apple pie. How are Annie and Oakley doing after their bout with the quills?

  5. Yum, Yum!!! That pie looks delicious! Our strange ninety degree weather continues. I think we traded places this summer. Oh apple pie, apple sauce, apple butter, apple cider, I'm off to dreamland! Enjoy - Hugs!!

  6. Who gets the apple peels?? :)

  7. Yummy! Fresh apple pie and carrot for the girls and Sammy. Fingers crossed it is dry for the hay. Patty

  8. Lots to do this time of year !

  9. Oh my that pie looks delicious. I could eat pie until the cows come home. Any type of pie. I totally gasped at the photos of your poor dogs with those "spears" coming out of their bodies. We all love our pets...no matter what shenanigans they throw our way. Happy Tuesday.

  10. I just love seeing your harvest! What a bounty! It sure is nice to see the Hubbs helps in the kitchen. Have a great week.

  11. I need to harvest our apples before the squirrels take them all.

  12. What a blessing to have your own apple trees! Hope you enjoyed every last bite!
