The Fruit Harvest

2013 was a great year for apples. This year one of our trees hasn't fruited at all and the others are very sparsely laden.

I've been picking apples so I can juice them in my fathers wine-press.


Lot of work for very little return.

Ailz says she'll buy me a juicer but that's missing the point. A juicer is kitchenalia whereas the winepress is a toy.

Maybe I'll press some grapes. We do have a few vines. My mother used to make wine. We found some bottles in the garage- twenty years old- and It tasted like- well, not like anything you'd pay money for.
