This Thursday Gail and I will be heading to the mountains to get apples for our annual apple cider day, this Sunday. I purchased a larger apple cider press and can’t wait to see if it works. This is always a fun time for our family to get together and enjoy each other’s company. Good food, hayrides, and of course fresh-pressed apple cider. I love this time of the year, cooler days, changing leaves and the smell of a wood fire in the air. I also think back to the times I would go to my Grandfather's farm in the fall and take in all the smells and things to see and do on a working farm. Those were some of the best memories from my childhood. I hope someday my children and grandchildren may say, “I remember Apple Cider Day at Grandpa’s, we always had a good time.” Who knows, maybe one of them will carry on the family tradition far into the future. Of course, they will need an apple press and I just happen to have two of them. Take care until next time.
