How did you do this year? We had a killer harvest where I live. Hopefully we can get some more. Still trees to be had.

Great to see somebody having the success I did in 2017.

I began with 3 trees.  One tree died of fireblight in late 2017.  This year, rose chafer beetles killed every apple on my other 2 trees.  That's how my season went!  I poisoned the chafer larvae, so hopefully 2019 is a bumper crop year!

The club pressing will be at the end of the month. The orchard says it is a good year for apples.

That was the second run. We filled up a barrel. Still more. But time is running out.
