Harvest Time!

Do you go to an orchard in the fall?  We have a few apples trees and a pear tree and every year we pick them and 'put them up' (meaning freeze/can/store).  This year the trees were exceptionally bountiful.  I don't know what kind of weather conditions make for a perfect apple year.....but this year was great.  After several days of picking and processing, I now have 25 gallons of apples and 6 gallons of pears in my freezer.  I also have several quarts of pears sitting in my cupboard.  What a good feeling!
