Blue sky at last! Today I took the opportunity of picking some apples from our garden. Something I love doing on a day like today. We've had grey skies and drizzle over the past week and it's not quite as much fun picking fruit in those conditions.
This apple tree is in our back garden. They are cooking apples.
This field is to the left of the apple tree. I sometimes like to pause for a while and look out in to the distance. You can sometimes see deer and foxes crossing the field. At other times you hear the distant sound of church bells on a Sunday morning or some evenings in the week when they have bell ringing practice. I never take all this for granted, I still appreciate it all.
Larry having his idea of fun with Lilly. Lilly is a lot more gentile and her brother can be a bit too boisterous for her sometimes. They do get on nevertheless!
This apple tree is in our front garden, these apples are the ones which I picked today as I wanted to make some apple juice.
Off I went with my basket. That should be enough for 2 or 3 days worth.
In they go, chopped up in to the cold press juicer. This is the best juicer I've ever had. So easy to use and hardly any mess. It also produces more juice and more goodness. Not cheap though.. I believe it is a lot cheaper in USA. It is particularly good if you drink green juices or are on a raw food diet. You can also make ice creams, pasta and other things with it too.
Et voila, freshly pressed apple juice. Delicious!
