Simple as Apple Pie

Alot of farming is a single job.  Mowing, tedding, raking, and baling is all one person.  I come in handy when it comes time to put the bales into the loft.  Ted really enjoys working on the tractor. I came along to  take pictures and enjoy the scenery.  I take this job very seriously. 
Emma and Lucy keep me company...
The apple trees are loaded with ripe green and red apples. They are so sweet and just a little tart.
The girls love to eat apples. Apples and carrots, two of their favorite snacks.
As the girls ate their share of the drops I started thinking about pies. I didn't come prepared with a basket so...my shirt tail did nicely.
They may have a few knots and wormholes but that can be cut out.
Emma and Lucy waiting for anything to drop. I think their middle name may be Hoover!
The pie turnout great.  Ted loves homemade apple pie.  I should have watched it a little closer.  My apple cut outs got a little too brown.
I found these pie crust cut outs/stamps the other day.  I have to practice! The ones on the box aren't quite as brown as mine. Heck, let's be real. Mine were almost burnt. Like I said. Practice. Help me Paula.
Happy Fall.
Much Love and Prayers from Mainely Ewes Farm.

Yum! I'd love a piece of that apple pie right now! :) I can't wait to have apple trees one day. :)

Those apples look wonderful and the dogs are great! I also love the new blog background. Isn't fall wonderful?

If you had trouble, and you had to ask Paula for help, well... you probably didn't use enough butter. :)

Do you spray your apples? We had our trees pruned this spring, but didn't spray. Needless to say, they are knotty and buggy. Not much meat for the work!!
