This week we finished cleaning up the orchard, as well as the veggie field. We cleaned up a few more apples for the pigs winter stash, and picked a few more Haralson hanging on for our winter eating.

John is a mountain climber...being an orchardist is a great compliment. Here he is picking apples....mind you I am laying flat on the ground to take this...and he is horizontal in the tree. :)
That's a wrap on our fifth season managing the orchard.
Trees planted in 2016 at the home orchard.
Nursery trees ready to be planted out in 2017.

The kids will be happy to eat apples (and some pumpkins) until they run out!
