...and says, "We have two bushels of apples for you"...
~ 1 day,
~ 2 bushels of Lodi apples,
~ $28.70 spent,
~ 2.1 miles from your house to where the apples were grown,
~ 0 disposable containers needed for storing and shipping the apples,
~ 6 workers (if you count Moriah, which maybe you shouldn't) ;-),
~ 5 bowls of fresh applesauce fed to the children at lunch (prompting them to declare that they like hot applesauce and that they should eat it that way more often!),
~ an unmeasured amount of sugar (probably good that you don't know an exact amount because you might be startled ;-)...with these apples being Lodi ones, rather than the sweeter Yellow Delicious that you normally get in the fall to use for applesauce, more sugar was needed) ;-),
~ 36 quarts to put in the cellar,
~ 1 BIG project done, well before Baby is due! :)
Maybe after you recover for a few days, you'll be ready for another applesauce-making day.
36 quarts isn't enough for the winter, you know! ;-)
