Picked up a lot of apples last night...some more tonight. I'm thinking we'll get about 45 gallons this year. Climbing those huge old apple trees and shaking out the apples is a complete cardio/full body workout. I'm in good shape but was completely gassed afterward. Cranking the grinder and turning the screw ain't exactly easy either. Cider making is a hard life....but it's a good life.
