February is Apple Month

This February, the largest producer of local apples in Western Canada, BC Tree Fruits is inviting Canadians to celebrate apple month by loading up on local apple varieties. By doing this, you have a chance of willing a trip to Okanagan.  If you’ve never been there before, you need to put this on your bucket list.  It’s such a beautiful place with so much to do.
Apple month encourages supporting local growers while adhering to Doctor’s orders of an apple a day!  The 2012 Apple Month also marks a milestone for BC Tree Fruits as it is the Okanagan organizations 75th anniversary.   From that first planted seed grew a co-operative of over 700 producers that continues today.
The nationwide contest is called: The Artful Apple.   Artful Apple asks fruit fans to decorate their favorite variety of BC Tree Fruit apples and upload the works of art to share. I’m really looking forward to seeing how everyone’s imaginations soar.  The public will vote for their favorite Artful Apple. T he individual with the winning apple will be awarded an exclusive Okanagan vacation package for four. Full prizing and details at Artful Apple
If you haven’t already noticed, during Apple Month, shoppers will notice additional displays of B.C. Tree Fruits apple varieties available at this time of year, including Ambrosia, Fuji, Granny Smith, McIntosh, Red Delicious, Royal Gala and Spartan. Consumers will be able to sample varieties in stores during the month as well.

About Dino
There are many things that I love to do. One of those things is crafts! If I could find a job that involved crafts and being able to pay the bills, I'd be all over it! I've also found a great love for cooking and baking in the past few years. Sometimes there doesn't seem to be enough time in the day to be able to fully get into cooking and baking to the degree that I would like to. I've also found myself making a HUGE effort to save my family money. I'm still a beginner but I'm surprised at how many different ways I've found to save money, including starting to use coupons! I hope you enjoy all that I'm about to share.
