If I See Another Apple....

Our apples did well this year.  Usually they are small, misshapen, and wormy.

We don't do anything to our ancient apple tree.  We don't spray or prune or any of the stuff you are supposed to do if you want a nice crop of apples.

But, this year, they're lookin' pretty good.  My in-laws also have multiple apple trees that are doing well this year.

John picked five 5-gallon buckets for me so far.  And, that's just scratching the surface.  

So, for the last 2 days I've been making and canning applesauce.  And, I'm only about halfway done with what he's picked me so far.  He asked if I want him to pick me more.  

The part of me that hates to see them go to waste thinks he should.  The other part of me.... the exhausted part... thinks not.

So, if you know me and you know where I live, come on over and pick yourself some apples!


  1. We have one apple tree, and we don't do anything special (although Jesse does prune it), and we have a super crop too. But the bees have drilled holes in most of them so they are not pretty. But they ARE yummy, I just have to slice them before using. We have way more than we could ever use, even with giving a bunch to my girls.

  2. Oh I LOVE homemade applesauce!!
    Wish I lived closer!!
    Enjoy the day
