ocy44-outNovember 3, OUTDOORS: Last day of apple harvest! Finding the crew by following wagon tracks across ground-frost, hearing fast&gentle thumping of apples scooped into buckets, spotting guys powering through the last odds & ends, snapping pics & getting out of the way!  There are field chores left to do but maybe a week left before the picking crew go home.  (BTW there’s fleece inside those rubber gloves.)

November 3, INDOORS: Pressing fermentation batches usually lasts well into December. This year maybe not so long, given 2016’s short crop. But it will feel long enough.     LDS
