It is getting to be that time of year. Next Saturday my crew and the Fallons will head out to pick apples, and hopefully my sister will meet up it us as well. I am hoping for two and a half bushels, that is almost 150 lbs of apples :) Then we will make tons of applesauce, apple butter, apple pie filling and sliced canned apples.
It is also the time of year when I break out the apple tarts and candles and give my home that delicious scent that we hold onto well into winter. I do stash a few of the summery smells, and use those when the winter days have been especially dreary and dark, but for now, I am wishing for apples.
