114 Types of Apples a Day Keeps the Doctor Away

So for those of you who didn't make it out to the amazing, delicious, and apple-tastic heirloom apple tasting in Venersborg today here's what you missed:

Yep..that's a real apple.

Over 114 apples...deeeelicious!

Great folks from the Home Orchard Society.

They'd like to do this bigger and better next Fall.

Anyone have a 5-7000 sq. foot building they'd be willing to donate for a day?

Biggest pear I've ever seen.

The folks that made it happen...Jacqueline & Joseph from Friendly Haven Rise farm

In addition to the tasting, there were numerous tasty baked goods available, cider, heirloom apples for sale by the pound, volunteers from the Home Orchard Society were onhand to answer questions, offer advice, identify apples from people's trees, and (best of all) they were accepting orders for apple trees. We were especially excited abot the tree sale. We ordered dwarf rootstock grafted versions of Kandil Sinap and Smokehouse. Amazing fruit.
