|Perfect apples on a perfect day.|

(also my finger, isn't it a cute finger?)
|Silas picks next to a bird's nest.|
When I was small my parents designed and built a passive solar (which is active now) house, and planted an orchard nearly all themselves (I picked up wayward nails). Today we six picked a bounty of apples, pears, grapes and plumbs. I'd like to thank my Papa and Mom for feeding us kids and grandkids for more than 30 years.
we I have a lot of work ahead. I think we will cook some, and press some. Next week I rented an apple press so that we can make cider, hard and sweet!
