Having your own garden is great. Harvesting food that you have grown yourself is rewarding, and tasty! But unless you’re a farmer with lots of acres, you can’t grow it all. Fortunately we’ve found some local farmers who are willing to share. Orchard is a big word that doesn’t mean a lot to a kid. But the moment we said apple patch, there was no end to the excitement!
All Brinley needed was a little help…
Drew needed a bit more help. Good thing Daddy’s been working out those neck muscles.
Ah, sweet success!
We discovered a new favorite: Liberty apples. Brilliant white on the inside, and tons of flavor and crunch!
Drew & Brinley preferred the sour ones. Big surprise…
All this apple tasting was making Rowan jealous. C’mon Mr. Mom, have a heart!
We all know he’d give the world for his little sis…
What she really wanted was to be free range just like her big bro & sis. Rowan is walking full time now…look at those chubby legs go!
McIntosh, Ginger Gold, Liberty, Crispin, Jonathan, Macoun…the hard part is deciding what to do with all of them. Pie, crisp, cake, fritters, sauce, cider… What a wonderful problem to have!
Low reps, high sets Binnie! You’ll have bulging, veiny biceps in no time. Ewww!
Hey Brinley, here’s a carrot. Let’s go feed the horses! You OK Brinley?
It makes sense she was afraid. These were huge Percheron draft horses. Drew enjoyed feeding them while he chatted about his and their apparent dental challenges.
Have you ever had a cider donut? Delicious! Perfect way to end the evening!
