Our apple picking continues on at full pace – last week we returned to a garden brimming with apples and pears in the Grange to pick the later ripening varieties.  This time we came with a equipped with a our new tarp, and found that shaking the apples off the tree onto the tarp is not only lots of fun, it is also one of the quickest ways of getting masses of stubborn cooking apples off the trees.
