That’s Betsy from CityFruit pouring some just-pressed cider at West Seattle Nursery, where CF welcomes you to bring your own apples – or enjoy cider from theirs – till 4 this afternoon. Along with the free cider, we discovered it’s a baked-goods-and-more sale too – apple pies, plum jam … But the real fun is helping with the press:
This is the first of at least three cider-press events in West Seattle and vicinity this fall. On October 13th, at 1 pm, you can go to Village Green Perennial Nursery (WSB sponsor) to be part of theirs (details here, including pumpkin carving!); on October 14th, 1-4 pm, there’s a cider-press party in the North Delridge P-Patch (details here). And if you want to do some cider pressing yourself – you can check with the West Seattle Tool Library to see if theirs is available!
