    Yesterday my friend Becky came over with a bushel of apples. We spent the morning peeling and coreing the apples. When we were done with that chore I took the bucket of apple scraps out and dumped them in the yard near the coop. When I let the girls out they made a beeline for the scraps! Those apples didn't stand a chance!
    Back in the house we were making and canning applesauce , apple butter and apple cider. While up to our elbows in canning chores there was a loud commotion in my kitchen window! Expecting to see the cats instead I found a very vocal Gertrude ! kitchen window is on the front of the house, the girls are kept in the large fenced in backyard! Yep, she's in trouble! But I don't think she cared, she just wanted more apples!
    Got any more apples?[​IMG]
