Apples & Pears & More SNOW!!!!

Yesterday DH & I went out and harvested the rest of the apples and pears that were left on the trees after he got home from work. I wanted to get as much as possible before our latest cold snap hit. And has it, you betcha, it's been snowing off and on all day today and has barely it 30.

Here is part of the harvest, I still have a large canvas bag full of apples.
It looks like I'll be baking apple pies and such over the weekend since it's going to be in the 20's for the highs and down around 10 over night.

Here's one of our apple trees this morning. Good thing we did the harvesting yesterday. The pear tree is on the other side of the antique potato planter behind the apple tree.

This is a view from my back porch around noon. We have about 2" of snow so far, but it's not done yet. This storm came down from Canada, thanks a bunch Canada, please feel free to keep the rest of your snow :) If you click on the picture to make it bigger you can see the falling snowflakes.


  1. Yikes... snow. No, no, no. lol

    The fruit looks scrumptious!

  2. The fruit looks wonderful!!! Makes me want to bake pies! :-)

    I can't get over the snow!!! It has been soooooo hot here! It was 96 yesterday! A very hot, sticky, humid 96! My AC has been running nonstop!

  3. Your harvest looks great! You can keep the snow--don't want it down here on the plains in CO!

  4. The apples and pears look so yummmmmy. I would love to see snow like that again. Here it is almost 10:30 pm and the temps are still in the 70's but that's cool for here now.
