Last night Allen and I picked 5 bushels of seconds to take to sale today to an Amish couple we met. They are interested in purchasing seconds from us for cider and we offered to deliver to them. [My horse Apollo likes to instigate the Amish horses as they 'drive by' on their buggies so I figured I'd spare the poor horse the aggravation ;) ]
It only took about 45 minutes to fill 5 seconds bushels so we're guessing that isn't too bad. This Amish couple tells us they live down the road from a cider mill so we may investigate that as well while we are out. After all, how cool would it be to see "Fresh Cider from Apolloson Acres"!
The rest of this week is a busy one as I'll be making caramel apples for Nova's Farmers Market Saturday and we'll also be picking more crop for sale. More McIntosh and Cortland apples.
