"The scent of apples: I am drowsing off"

I love the poem by Robert Frost, After Apple Picking, and now I got to see what really happens after apple picking. The hubby picked me me a bucket of apples the other day, and tonight I canned Apple Pie filling. From the bucket full of apples Joe picked, we got 6 quarts (6 apple pies) worth of filling. This was a first as well, and the apple peeling and slicing took WAY longer than expected...2 hours! But it was worth it in the end to know that I have 6 apple pies worth of filling all ready at a moments notice and made from farm fresh apples!
