Every year, we look forward to apple season. And then it arrives, and we are buried in apple season, our pigs are buried in windfall apples, and we can’t wait for the Sooke Apple Fest. And then, before we know it, it’s mid-October, and the rains have come, and all is cool and moist.
But not yet. There is still time to savour the rare-variety apples, buy a slice of pie, pick up some fresh-pressed, boxed apple cider, and hear Gord Phillips sing songs we forgot we all knew.
It’s a good time. Hope to see you there! Erin will be volunteering at the apple sales tent, and Tony will be selling boxed apple cider in the vendors area. Come say hi!
