Apple Wednesday!

Happy Wednesday night everyone!  I know many of you are aware that the reason I’m not blogging as much as normal is because it’s apple season!  My family owns and operates an apple orchard near Madison, Wisconsin so the next month and a half is extremely crazy for me.  So – I don’t want you all to loose interest in me and I’m still going to try to post sewing related posts as well, but one day a week I plan to do an ‘apple summary’ for you all on what’s been going on so you can either check it out or stop back later…How does this sound?

I’m going to start by posting on Wednesday’s but this day may change depending on what we have going on in that particular week.


Week 7 of Kids in the Garden was interrupted by a sudden rain storm.  We still found a way to have some fun stuck in the shed anyway!


Our whole family had a great time walking in the local parade a few weeks ago…it was our first time but definitely not the last!IMG_1606

We had a wonderful last day of Kids in the Garden with some beautiful weather and delicious treats made from fruits and vegetables the kids helped us grow all summer!

I continued my ‘Sauce-sational Experiment’ with Duchess apples – you can see what I thought HERE.


We have the delicious ‘Slide’ Food Cart joining us for our big ‘Craft-Apple-Ar’ event on August 25th.


Our relatives just opened up a new winery –Rock N Wool Winery -  a few miles from us.  We had a great visit there this past Saturday trying out wines and getting a tour of all the work they’ve done.

One of our biggest restaurant supporters – Monty’s Blue Plate Diner – is hosting their annual ‘Farm Hop Barley Pop’ event filled with farm tours, a gourmet local food dinner and live music!


So…can you see why it’s been a bit difficult to find time for sewing… That’s okay though – I still have been doing some hand work here and there and sneaking small bits of sewing in when I can.  I refuse to give up!


  1. I'm sharing so maybe some of my family in Wisconsin will stop by.

  2. Awesome! That's really amazing of you!

  3. This all looks fun even if exhausting. Our apples are peaking now too and we are picking and sharing.
