Word of the week: Apples. Lots and lots of apples.
Best Riding Friend has two mature apple trees in the backyard, and this year, they were bountiful. A wind storm blew through a couple of weeks ago and filled the yard with apples, most of which were not quite ripe. First Reader and I spent a couple of days this week filling the trailer so we can take them up to our property and toss them over the edge of the far driveway.
We are nowhere near through with apples, though. The upper reaches of both trees are loaded with even more apples than we have already picked up. I’ve had an apple from one of the trees, and it was tasty though still a bit tart, so I suspect we’ll be munching apples soon enough.
