Trading with Neighbours

By Stowel Lake Farm

The children ran through the forest to our Neighbours house.  They know where we are going and what we are doing as we been picking apples from this one special tree for years now.  Each spring we give our friends tomato, pepper and basil plants for their garden.  In exchange we get to pick their Spartan apple tree.  

The boys climb the tree and start filling boxes.  They are skilled at eating and picking at the same time!  This little fall ritual has warmed our hearts for years now.  It is so simple, yet keeps us connected.  We so value this and always look forward to seeing each other.
