100 word Challenge for Grown ups – Week#58 …

September 19, 2012


As the apples fell or more important before they fell and become damaged we at MERL celebrated.  We will again on 20th October;  Apple Day ; when the museum and its friends come out and enjoy the last days of the summer sun, apples and orchards.  
There is an opportunity to taste different varieties of apples, chutneys and apple juice.  There are activities for children such as apple and spoon races and the longest peel competition.  
The day would not be complete without a book from a local publisher.  We have it in the library  and is the best memento of the day … and will be heralded indeed.

Apples Berkshire cider : the A-Z guide to apples, apple-growing and cider making in Berkshire written by Duncan Mackay designed and lettered Pip Hall and illustrated by Peter Hay, Two Rivers Press.

      Celebrations of this sort don’t happen much since we apparently prefer imported apples … consumers are having their say and enjoying and celebrating home grown hurrah! . Thanks for the comment x

    Apple Day sounds like a great idea. We’ve started growing our own coz it’s so hard to buy English apples from shops.
