Cider Week started here in NYC and Hudson last Friday on October 18th. It continues until this Sunday October 27th. We went to the cider week celebration in Union Square last week. I got there a tad too late and missed trying the hard ciders but I was able to take a bottle home. Union Square is a big open space where markets and fairs are held. The farmer markets stayed later that day, till 8. I finally got to pick up some pumpkins!
A few weeks ago while I was away visiting family, my sisters and I went pumpkin picking with our families. It was a gorgeous day!
I love the fall. I love walking around my neighborhood and hearing the crunch of the dry leaves and smelling the crisp fall air. Buying apples at the farmer's market and making home made apple pie. To celebrate the fall and cider week I am giving away one of my new limited tea towels. There are only four of these made, what can I say blue apples are hard to come by.
This is a pieced tea towel. The main fabric is a japanese print of apples that are blue and yellow printed on canvas pieced to a bright yellow cotton fabric. There is a hanging loop sewn into the back. Machine washable. I sell these for $18.00 in my etsy shop.
Just leave a comment and I will be picking the winner next Tuesday. Enter your comment by Monday October 28th midnight eastern time. Don't know what to say? Do you like apples? Apple cider? Apple sauce? Do you have a favorite apple? How many apple varieties are there anyway? And be sure to check out the Cider Week website, two more days to visit one of the events!
