Apple picking in Humphreys End

Once again the Humphreys End orchard was opened to a group of apple-pickers - we picked apples in groups - sheets, a shaker and bicycle helmets!! Most of us took away a sack for £6. Sadly it wasn't possible to advertise the event more widely as in previous years as the apple crop is not so good this year at that site.

We didn't get down to juicing like previous years - partly because of the lack of apples - See my video of apple juicing in 2008 here. However there are still some apples to go so another session might be planned?

The weather was pretty rough just before we started but then only a bit of a shower and even some sun! Arh but now have been cutting, cooking, freezing and more....meanwhile I missed Apple Day celebrations at the Farmers Market - apparently like previous years a huge range of apples were there...
