Picking Apples

Posted Oct 05 2009 10:00pm

The strong winds we had yesterday reminded us that we should be picking the apples, before they are blown off and bruised.

Bruised apples will not store, so we aim to pick the apples before the birds have started to feed on them and before the ripe apples are blown onto the ground.

We have separated the apples into three groups:

  • perfect apples which will store well through the winter
  • blemished and very slightly damaged apples, which will keep a month or two
  • badly pecked, wasp eaten or bruised apples, which will be used straight away

Picking apples in the warm autumn sunshine has been a pleasure this year!
