Apple time!

Well, it has happened again....the wild varmints let us know that it is time to harvest the apples!
And, so having lost a few to the critters, we got out the ladder and picked the crop.
We have two "colonade" apples from Stark Bros. They are about 16 or 17 years old, has it really been that long?? Maybe even longer, I have lost track....
Anyway, this years crops was small, but not bad for two little trees, that are about 18" wide and 10-14 ft tall....

17.8 pounds of apples!
So, there is the apple pie for Thanksgiving....and a whole mess of applesauce....
Have a great day!

I'm getting hungry for an apple something but haven't decided what to make yet. Congrats on your harvest!
