The Harvest Continues …..


Angela working on the harvest

Angela, Fay and I were out harvesting as Abundance (North Sheffield) again today, and picked another four boxes full of lovely apples. We got to try out the new extendable apple picking grabs loaned to us by Diane at LEAF, so a big thanks to her for that …. they worked a treat!

A big thanks also to Linda and her family who kindly offered her trees into this years harvest, its wonderful to see just how many people and groups can benefit from one family sharing the abundance of their own harvest.

Having been safely gathered in the apples are now being stored at PXI offices at Mount Tabor and ready for redistribution in the community. Some will be used by allotmenteers on the 20th September when we get together at the pavilion in Parson Cross Park to have a chutney making session, but there’s loads left still so if anyone wants any or has ideas for where they could be used let me know.

Apples picked and ready to go to Mount Tabor

If you’ve any recipes for using apples creatively other than pies and crumbles (delicious though these are) feel free to add them here as a comment. So far this season we’ve picked around 220llbs of apples and 20llb of pears!

  1. Glad to know the fruit pickers worked well – no falling out of trees today then! The apples look so lovely and red and shiny. Bet they taste good too. . . .
