Harvesting apples.

I dag har vi høstet epler. Vi rakk ikke over hele treet riktignok, men det var en god start.


Today we harvested apples from the big old apple tree in the garden. We did get all the apples down today, but it was a good start.


Den nedre delen av treet ble plukket for hånd, men for å få ned de lenger oppe måtte treet ristes.


The apples in the lower parts of the tree were picked by hand, and then we needed to shake the branches for those higher up to drop. 


Årets epler var ganske fine. Litt skurv på skallet var det som vanlig, men ellers så det ut til å ikke være så mye mark.


The apples are nice this year. There's some stains on the skin as usual, but it seems to be not so much worms.


Pus var som vanlig på plass for å hjelpe til :)


As always our Kitty was there to help us :)


Vi fikk pakket fem sekker med epler som skal leveres til pressing, og det kommer til å bli mange fler sekker til press når vi får høstet resten av treet.
Naturligvis sorterte jeg unna en hel del jeg skal ha selv til eplemos, saft og gele.


We packed five large bags of apples to deliver for pressing at a local farm, and more bags will follow when harvesting the rest of the apples.
And of course I put aside some apples for this year's produce of apple sauce, juice and jelly.


Her er min samling. 
Filippa-epler bruker ikke å være så gode til lagring, men vi la unna noen forsiktig plukkede fine epler på brett som skal lagres kjølig i matboden, så får vi håpe de holder seg utover.


These are the apples I'm keeping.
The Filippa apples do not store very well, but we put some nice looking carefully picked apples on thrays that will be stored in the pantry. Hopefully they will keep for a while.

En helt uvanlig hverdag said...

Så koselig.
Vi hadde en del epler på vårt tre, men det er ganske lite. Litt eplekake har det blitt, ellers så har vi spist resten.

Ha en fin dag.
Klem
