How are you doing? It's great to hear from you again on here. So sorry about your sow. Oh my, did the boars kill her? I kept pigs before coming to the US so I know that they're smart and can be quite dangerous. We had one sow that used to make traps for the ducks and then she'd lie in wait and kill and eat them. She was as friendly as could be unless you were a duck.

So, you're inundated with apples? So are we! We have a few trees of our own that did really well this year. And just when we thought we were done dealing with those our neighbour gaves us several buckets of apples. We finished saucing those when we got given an offer we could not pass up. A local orchard with literally hundreds of trees decided not to sell this year. Anyone can go by and pick apples for free. They're tons of varieties and all our huge apples with no flaws. Yum! So, guess what we're doing now! Yep, canning, saucing, apple buttering, desserts, etc.

We freeze some too. They don't turn mushy. Just blanche them lightly beforehand. We like to slice them and freeze them for future pies. The horses, goats, and chickens are enjoying the bad apples.

Nope, no vacation this summer. Too busy! We will probably go to the coast this winter. Get away from all the snow and ice for a week.

Don't work too hard!
