Harvest time

Today we harvested many of the apples before the wind and rain due tomorrow and I took them over the Ringden Farm in Flimwelll.  With a car loaded and the weight hopefully fairly well balanced, I set off for the long drive  through  Horam, Burwash and Etchingham.   The picture is of the bin where the apples go waiting to be pressed  at Ringden. This batch is a mix of Lord Derby, Lord Lambourne, Adam's Permain, a few Crawly Beauty and Red Falstaff apples.  

These will be pressed, bottled and pasteurised and then be ready for sale.
