Apple Harvest - Horfield Community Orchard

This was the beautiful apple tasting table at Horfield Organic Community Orchard, which was open today for it's annual Apple Day. There were so many beautifully named varieties to try - Ribson Pippin, D'Arcy Spice, Lane's Prince Albert and our new favourite - Kidd's Orange Red.

Z tried his hand at apple pressing.

It was lovely weather - the perfect English Autumn day. E and Z dug for potatoes in the sun.

Apple Day is on the 21st October so there are lots of apple events on during the coming week. You can find a list of local orchards here if you'd like to visit one too.
