We went on our annual trip to central Washington to pick crabapples and buy peaches. This year it seemed like the whole area was on fire. There was an inversion so also dangerously smokey. Here is the orchard we pick in. You can barely see the hills nearby.
But we managed to pick almost 400# of crabapples. Our cider may be a little smoke flavored this year. We also picked up Madison, a sheep from Jackie who has lost her husband and been evacuated twice for wildfires. I hope Madison will be happy here where we do not have wildfires but flooding problems instead.
