I've never been to an apple day event before and I was curious about what happens at one. They seem to have apple days all over the place these days in the East of England. We went to one in Tring and we met up with the cousins at the same time - so it was three boys running around an orchard and attempting to eat rotting windfalls. Boys eh?
They did love the demonstration of apple mashing and pressing and tasting the lovely juice that was produced.
It was a good shopping opportunity for me as I bought a jar of apple chutney and some wooden wine cases - I think I saw Alys Fowler using these for planting salad veg in her own quirky cutesy way
John bought some cox's orange pippin and blenhim orange variety of apples.
