We have an awesome neighbor who owns an apple cider press. Each fall he invites us to bring over our apples and helps us make fresh apple cider. It's become a tradition.
The bees like our apples too. It's better to pick when the temperature is a bit cooler so they aren't as active. I was especially wary this year after my bee sting a few weeks ago. I'm still trying to get rid off my hives. The doctor prescribed a second round of prednisone, this time with a higher dose and for 3 weeks instead of 5 days. Side effects include weight gain due to increased appetite and water retention. Unfortunately, my scale is telling me this is not imaginary.
If I'm not posting here, I'm probably out horsing around!
