Our big apple tree is breathing a sign of relief
after giving up most all of his fruits.
This is maybe half of what we handed off to friends for cider-making
I kept some for our own use, and have a couple boxes of undamaged grounders that will be sheep snacks over the next few weeks.
And there are still some up there-
that I’m ok with leaving to the birds.
There are enough to go around. And around. And around 🙂
And speaking of going around and around, I’ve been making pretty good progress on the shawl collared vest.
About 4 inches ago I put the underarm stitches on holders and cast on the steek stitches for the arm holes. Also started decreases to shape the elongated v-neck.
So far, so good. Maybe by next weekend I’ll be ready to sew and cut the steeks!
Thanks for the apples. Tom unloaded them yesterday and there are maybe 500#. Pretty impressive for one tree! The vest is gorgeous,
Yeah, that tree is a serious overacheiver- Thanks for taking them. It’s happy to know that they will be put to good use!
