CLOSED for the 2017 Season.

PLEASE HELP RECYCLE!

Drop off your plastic bags and canning jars at the orchard and we'll re-use them!

We're always looking for wagons for people to use when they go to our pumpkin patch - feel free to drop off your old or un-used wagons at the orchard!

We're also happy to take any picnic tables you're getting rid of - even if it's just the 'bones' of the table.

Thanks!

Winter at Lapacek’s Orchard

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

It’s been pretty quiet on the blog this winter.  I’ll admit – I was not a fan of the weather.  I pretty much just hibernated all winter long – with a bit of quilting mixed in. 
IMG_5270Jared, Frank and Diane did do LOTS of canning though!IMG_5291
We are all restocked for the 2014 apple season with all your favorite canned goodies!
Frank and Jared also got the orchard pruned.  It was a strange year for pruning and much of it happened way later than we normally would do it.  The super cold days though were not good for the trees to be cutting on them though.

Cedi, Jared, and I walked the rows and picked the branches up by hand.

and tied the branches they found up and pulled them to the pile.  Hard work.
