Apple Thinning

Apple thinning is completed and the fruit set is good. Honey Crisp will be available next year. We need to let them grow another year before they are allowed to have a heavy crop.
We are looking forward to picking Akane apples in the 3rd week of August.


We are going to the Oregon City Farmer's Market on Wednesdays. This week we will bring the following pies:

Whole Wheat and Butter Crust:

Apple Raspberry

Rhubarb Custard (very good!)

Lemon Meringue

Sugar Free Apple

Gluten Free, Egg Free, but not dairy free: (Made with butter)



Last week I made a dairy free pie using Earth Balance shortening (margarine). It was an acceptable crust. (We like our butter.)
