Our orchard is loaded with fruit. Last spring it looked like this. Now we literally have so much fruit from those blooms that it is very overwhelming. It happens every few years and this year is it. I'm hoping to make lots of applesauce this fall and maybe even some cider. And we're giving them away to everyone we know who will pick them themselves.
There will be plenty left for the deer, turkeys, bears, bees, and other wildlife.
BOOK PARTY - MAY 5-6
to celebrate the publication of my new book
CRAFTING A PATTERNED HOME.
Our colorful 1751 farmhouse will be open to the public. On view will be many of the projects that are featured in Crafting A Pattern Home along with many other things I have made over the years.
This event will be a celebration of the handmade. I hope the day will inspire you to add some pattern and color to your home.
The event is FREE. Books will be available along with some other things I have made. For more information and directions, see the EVENTBRITE PAGE HERE. Although tickets are not mandatory, it will help me get a count to know what to expect. Hope to see you here in western Massachusetts in May.
