Harvests, etc.

I didn't have a whole lot to write about, being out of the house most of the days this week, but seeing how Little Shadow Creations needed a non-giveaway post to comment on (*grin*), I thought I'd oblige.

This is just a small portion of the apples that we either harvested from our trees or got from our friends C and D's trees. They may not look like the Stepford-Wives-perfect apples you find at a grocery store, but these look this way because they've never been sprayed with nasty stuff.Besides, the dehydrated apples that came out in the end were pretty perfect, and so amazingly tasty:We dehydrated twice already, and may have to do more as there are still 3 large baskets full of apples in the garage.

I also need to rhapsodize about our bell peppers. We've had a very nice crop this year. Just look at these beauties:And last, but not least, I'd like to mention a great site that I found from Suzanne's blog (which is always a treasure) - Operation NICE. What a terrific concept! It wouldn't kill anyone to be a lot nicer to others. Luckily, nearly everyone that I've met in the Blog World have been wonderful human beings.
