Picking a weekend to make apple cider is always a little iffy in the fall. This year we got really lucky. We had a wonderful sunny morning. Around lunch time the clouds started moving in and then early in the afternoon the rain came. But we were able to get most of the apples pressed in the morning before it rained.

The morning was great with the sun out! And then the rain came. Luckily we finished just before it started raining hard.

We ended up making 38-39 gallons of apple cider this year! There are 38 gallons pictured but I know we had at least half a gallon to drink at lunch.
