More pressing business

    OK, nothing new in the world of apples this weekend, except this time I had a little help shifting them from orchard to press. The sheer decadence and luxury of driving a Kawasaki Mule with a load of apples rather than pushing a wheelbarrow!
    The apples are a very nice sweet red eater caller Ingrid Marie, and what you see in the picture is about 3/4 of our tree's yield. About half of these are stored away for eating, the other half joined the rest of the weekend's haul in the press.
    Now the Mule's mobile again I get the workshop space back for the Rusty Old Wreck.


  1. You can store them after a rid on the back of that thing?

  2. My driving loses some of its Dukes of Hazzard quality when transporting them :)

  3. Just some? :)

    So how long can you keep the eating apples for before they go soft and wooly?


  4. I suppose you only went along for the ride..........LOL

  6. careful, after nine pints of strong cider you'd never find your way back to the airport!
