Harvest Monday, August 29, 2011


This past week, I cannot even remember, what, if anything, I have harvested from the garden!
Some beans, I am sure. Probably some peppers.

But right now, were are drowning in Apple harvests!
Between now and the end of harvest season, I invite you to stop back on Wednesdays and share an Apple (or Pear or Quince) recipe for my 'Apple Harvest Party!'


Now hop on over to Daphne's Dandelions to see what other gardener's are harvesting!

Those apples are so pretty hanging on that tree - like candy apples they are so red!

The apple harvest season always shouts "Fall" to me. We just got a bit of a late summer warm up (finally) but the days are definitely getting shorter and I can feel the approach of fall.

Those apples are absolutely gorgeous! I wonder if you tire of all your apples and pears or if the magic of so much fruit keeps you excited about it all? I imagine it can feel a bit overwhelming, but how wonderful to have an orchard!!!

Bee Girl - it is funny you ask that! It can certainly be daunting at times; especially during the spring when we have to prune. But the harvesting is always fun. I get a tad panicked too when it all starts harvesting at once and I have to 'use it/sell it, or loose it'! But I couldn't imagine not having the abundance now!

Oh! Such pretty apples! Mine are due shortly too! But I have just 3 small trees:)

I soooo wish I had an apple tree like yours. One of my favorite films as a child was Anne of Green Gables and at the end of the sequel, there's a great scene of them picking apples. Your tree looks amazing.

I hope to plant a small orchard of my own one day. When that day comes, you'll have to give me plenty of advice!

No Kidding! They look so good. What will you do with them all?

Allison at Novice Life said...

Jody - this is just one of 110 trees we have :) We sell at a local farmer's market and I can as many as I 'can' - no pun intended ;)

Wow, are those beautiful. I'm going to have to dig up my recipe for beet and apple salad to share, although I have neither on hand at the moment so I'll have to get to the farmer's market if I want to make it.

The apples are gorgeous, the vibrant red against the leaves!
