Apples Galore

My apple trees and every other one in the district is filled with abundance this year. It was an excellent year for fruit and anything else that had a blossom (flowers). I have been offering apples but everyone has the same thing and wild trees abound for people without their own. I have had people feeding horses or pigs come by in years past, a cider maker has picked here and many, many for just baking pies and such.

How wonderful, Mary! I'd love to come pick a bushel!
Mary MacADNski: I wish you could.
I'd certainly want to help you unload them, Mary!!!

Nature's colourful bounty indeed
Us too Mary, my apple trees have produced about three or four times their normal quantity.
Oh I love real apples!
Mary MacADNski: These have never seen a chemical or spray in the last 33 years.

Can you make cider? If not, now is the time to learn. Just think; that you still can enjoy these apples in the middle of the winter, then.
Mary MacADNski: I have a friend who makes cider.

This year is rich of apples - what a wonderful autumn photo! I would like to pick some of them for cooking Apfelmus!

it all sounds delightful; a good crop for all. I do love an apple pie (warm with ice cream) and I can enjoy a glass of cider at times, although it's not a preferred drink. I bet the horses love the apples.
Next door to us have an Apple tree and it has bloomed so well we have been regularly supplied with apples for the last couple of months.

This is such a 'rich' feeling. I love this picture, what great apples, too bad that you have too many. I used to make apple sauce from it, just cook the apples until almost done and still pieces of apple in it and with cinnamon, a delight.
