Today we pressed apples except it was sunny and warm. Usually when we press apples it is cold and stormy. I typically am drenched in rain, have numb hands from the cold and/or am waiting for a tree to fall on me in the wind. This year all I had to worry about was getting sweaty and sunburnt. This is because our apples are early this year thanks to our warm summer.
I am not complaining. Below is a shot of mother and daughter from this morning. Can you tell they are related?
Nice touch with the fleece on the drying rack in the background.
Thanks Elaine! It is quite unusual for us to have wool drying (a summertime task) and pressing apples (an autumn task). Tom did not like the wool smell, saying it was like pressing among wet sheep.
