Harvest Time!

After months of watching, hoping and hardly any watering -- given that the skies took care of it for us this summer-- it was time to harvest our apple tree. As you can see from above, the yield was somewhat disappointing-- yes, we really only got three off our tree. (One fell off in the rain about two days before the harvest, and another was lost about a month ago).

So hardly enough for a pie, or even a small crumble. But the boys were thrilled. And it's possible we'll be able to double our output next year with just a little bit of work.

From your apple tree, you might not have enough for a huge pie...but look at what you are growing in young men! You are raising two intelligent, personable, sweet, kind people. For where I'm sitting...the apple doesn't fall far from the tree!! Kel
