  1. found an apple tree today, on town land…. we’re perfecting the picking. It’s a tall tree. I think I’ll make those canned apple slices again, don’t you think I should? :-) And apple sauce, that’s a given.

  2. Can you send me the recipe for dilly beans: D and J loved those ones we got from the share last year.
